IMPORTS AND EXPORTS
There is large demand for UK genetics throughout the EU and the rest of the world. AB Europe veterinarians and technical staff work closely with DEFRA, International Government Departments and Agencies to assist breeders who wish to import or export semen and embryos. As most international movement of livestock genetics occurs in the form of frozen semen or embryos, our import services enable breeders to access this global resource and further their links abroad increasing sales.
Export rules and regulations continue to be a complex process; quarantine restrictions, health requirements and various blood tests mean the collection process can take two to three months. Each export market also has different health requirements therefore the process could potentially be even longer and most new markets require a pre- entry quarantine. It must then remain in quarantine for up to 30 days therefore forward planning and special consideration is needed if you receive export inquiries.
