Live Bivalve Molluscs (Including Scallops)

Live Bivalve Molluscs harvested from non class A waters (including Scallops from unclassified waters) which cannot be verified by certifying officers, as fit for human consumption at the point of export, cannot be exported to the European Union or Northern Ireland, as there is a permanent barrier to trade. If you are impacted by this barrier to trade we really want to hear from you and would be grateful if you could complete this short survey. LBMs from Class A waters can still be exported to the EU and NI and other 3rd country trade remains unaffected. LBMs harvested from Class B waters for on-growing in the EU and NI can also be exported.
