  • Confused by Import / Export Regulations with the EU?

    Moving freight around the world is ever more difficult and expensive. The last thing you need is problems with your import/export paperwork for the shipment of animal derived material.
    The ISIA, working together with Medtech Europe, has just completed a full revision of our Guidance on the movement of product into, through and out of the EU. This Guidance is focused on serum and animal derived products only and has clear directions on what you need to do. This will be available shortly to members only.
    For immediate information, please see the revised 1069/142 FAQ’s located on the Regulatory page of the website
