Portsmouth Port Health Authority uses a per consignment basis for its charges. Where multiple catch certificates are submitted for the same consignment which includes high and low risk country certificates, the higher risk charge will be applied.
A consignment will be determined as goods covered by a distinct set of documentation e.g. where there is more than one processing statement in the IUU documentation (particularly where it pairs with a CHED-P), it is likely to be processed and charged separately.
Imports coming directly from the following flag states are currently defined as low risk:
• EEA/EFTA country (Norway, Iceland, Faroe Islands).
• Country with a bilateral agreement with the EU for IUU purposes (USA, Canada, New Zealand), e.g. fish caught by a US fishing vessel and processed in a US approved establishment.
The following imports are currently defined as high risk:
• fish caught by other third country fishing vessel,
• fish from EU/bilateral/EEA/EFTA countries that have been processed in a third country (indirectly imported), e.g. fish caught by a US fishing vessel and processed in a Vietnamese approved establishment. (Fish caught by a vessel registered to an EU/EFTA/bilateral country and subsequently processed in another third country loses its low risk status and is charged at the higher rate.)
