What information or advice are the major UK bait manufacturing companies providing, that would be useful?

Thanks Colin for that information, so basically we canīt take any UK manufactured boilies then. Well we learnt how to catch carp without fishing baits off the hooks, so now following on from the hair rig, we need to use a fresh air rig, surely the carp will fall for that.

David,

If boilies contain animal products such as egg, fish (but NOT meat or milk products), the MAX personal limit = 2kg
If boilies contain meat or milk products, the MAX personal limit = 0kg (ie totally banned, will be confiscated)

20kg limit is nothing to do with bait, itís only for fresh fish for human consumption and then under certain circumstances.

Other than these personal limits, if you want to take boilies into the EU youíll need to be a DEFRA approved exporter and every consignment will need microbiology tests, pre-export Vet checks, Export Health Certification, legal representation as a distributor in the EU, give 24hrs notice to the EU customs of your arrival and then have the goods inspected at the border.

Or, you can try a bit of smuggling and take your chances! Depends on how reasonable you think French customs will be.

I understood the meat and dairy regs had been in place for a number of years Jimmy. It applied to items entering the EU. Pre Brexit it wasn't an issue for the English as we were already within the EU. Obviously things are now different for us as we are now importing.
If I have got that wrong sorry.

Jimmy I am getting more and more confused, maybe it is an age thing, will we or won't we be allowed to take UK manufactured boiles to Europe and if we are, will the restriction be 20kgs? Thanks

Not sure why anybody in the UK would want to use boilies made in the EU on UK waters, they are rubbish!!

Shingoose is exactly right. The 20kg relates to pure fish products, no boilies would be applicable to this allowance.
There's no ifs buts and maybes anymore, boilies will not be permitted under the new rules. And they are NEW rules, seen loads of people saying that they have always existed - they haven't, it WAS perfectly fine taking meat, dairy and cereal products into the EU until the start of this month.

Rather a kick in the teeth for U.K. manufacturers from our govt.

Hardly a surprise. It was Johnson who said '**** business' when questioned about Brexit concerns, after all.

No, Iím sorry, thatís not correct. If youíre taking over the personal allowance (0kg if containing meat/milk, 2kg if containing neither) then where the boilies were made will make no difference to the requirement for an Export Health Certificate issued by a DEFRA Vet after an inspection of the individual consignment youíre looking to export into the EU. Plus all the other rigmarole associated with a commercial export will apply, even if youíre not looking to sell the goods.

The country of origin will only affect the issue of whether tariffs are applied (U.K. or EU origin = no tariffs, nonEU/U.K. = tariffs payable).

Indeed boilies made in France would need to travel to the U.K. with a French EHC, and then would need. U.K. EHC to go back the other way. Well, the French will need the EHC from July - our govt have given EU exporters 6 month grace that doesnít apply going U.K.-EU direction! Rather a kick in the teeth for U.K. manufacturers from our govt.

I should think so.... it's the point of origin that is the issue. The difficulty would be proving it was made within the EU.

Just spoke to a friend in France , a bait company he uses is struggling to get ingredients now , as they relied on importing stuff from here .
