Shellfish operators at the site of origin are obligated to issue a self-declaration document for movement of shellfish to another member state as directed under Article 218 of Regulation (EU) 2016/429.
The signed self-declaration document should accompany the consignment to the site of destination.
The self-declaration form is required ONLY when consignments of aquaculture animals are not accompanied by an animal health certificate.

Please continue to apply to the Marine Institute for all movements of aquaculture animals for further on-growing.
