MPI notice dated 31st January 2018:
A revolutionary new mapping system that's set to take the logistics industry by storm.New Address
MPI is making some changes to the way we issue and deliver export documentation for wine. These changes are to ensure our trading partners have continued confidence in our export regulatory system, and maintain and grow market access.
Changes to how VI-1 certificates are issued for wine exported to the EU
MPI is changing the way we issue VI-1 certificates for wine exported to the EU.
Freight forwarders will still receive two copies of the VI-1 document, but from 12 February 2018 one will be marked as 'Copy'. EU regulations require that you present both the original and the copy of each VI-1 certificate to EU border officials.
A reminder about replacement or updated Official Assurance documents
If Official Assurance documents for wine (VI1, Brazil Certificate or Origin and Analysis, or Free Sale Certificate) require amending, please return the original Official Assurance documents to us. Once MPI receives the documents from you, we will process the amendment request. Your customers may need your assistance to return documents to MPI.
This change will be strictly enforced from 12 February 2018.
Changes to how export documentation is delivered
MPI is also changing the way we deliver export documentation to you.
We are transitioning to courier delivery to ensure export documents reach you in a timely and reliable manner.
To enable this we need to ensure we have the correct delivery address for your company. This address must be a physical location, not a PO BOX or Private Bag. We kindly ask that you email us the following details to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 February 2018:
- Company name
- Location / City
- Physical delivery address.
We anticipate moving to courier delivery in March and will be in touch again to let you know exactly when this is happening.
