Hi, Elina. The import-export process deals with a lot of documentation, especially when you need to import from a non-EU country in the EU. The whole set of documents can be divided into four:1. Documents required by importers and for customs clearing in the target market2. Documents required to export the goods from South Africa3. Documents required for payment4. Documents required to transport the goods, i.e. the transport documents. The first set of documents is very important. In my experience, we import and export different types of reptiles from all over the world, including South Africa, I can tell you that the list of documents we need to import our little animals in the Netherlands is the following: • Bill of Entry • Bill of Lading/Airway bill • Packing List • Certificate of Origin • Commercial Invoice • Import License. I hope this is helpful.

South Africa the largest trading partner of Europe. The region is a free trade area and its trade policy with the EU is ruled by the Trade, Development, and Co-operation Agreement (TDCA). Most food and drink products imported from the EU have no restrictions.Most regulations are for food and drink that are imported from countries outside the EU. In this case you may need:- health certificates- import licencesFood which is intended for human consumption must meet the general food safety requirements of European Union law. Food must not be unsafe, this means: (injurious to health, unfit for human consumption).
