Export certificate services

Find out how to get export health certification (EHC) for live crustaceans, fishery products, fish and shellfish exports.

We can provide export health certification. We have trained Food Competent Certifying Officers (FCCO) authorised to do this.

Products that need export certificates include:

  • live crustaceans
  • fishery products
  • fish
  • shellfish

This service is available Monday to Friday - excluding Bank Holidays.

There may be times when the service is not available. We will always give as much warning as possible if this happens. Official Veterinarians can also issue certificates.


The charge per export health certificate is £135 (excluding VAT).

The charge per Attestation certificate is £135 (excluding VAT).

These charges also apply if a new certificate has to be re-issued because new information has to be included after we have produced the original certificate.

Payment for EHC services will be invoiced monthly.

If the draft export certificate is submitted for certification after 1pm, a late payment charge of £180 per certificate will be charged (except for circumstances out of the control of the business).

Certification and attestations

We provide these when a central government does not exist in the receiving country. They provide proof of registration and compliance with food law. We can supply attestations for all premises within the Torbay area.

We supply these at your own risk and accept no liability if they do not pass border inspection.

Read our terms and conditions for the supply of EHCs before using this service.
