Food and Veterinary Border Control

The Port of Kalundborg houses a Border Control Point for import of food and products of animal- as well as non-animal origin operated by the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration.

The border control operation is conducted according to EU legislation regarding border control points and national regulations, including declaration no. 1810 of December 3rd, 2020, about border control points, inspection centers, and control points.

Containers for control will only be handed over to the importer after the control is completed.

Rates for use (excl. the rate of the Veterinary and Food Administration)

The veterinary fee per container                                                          DKK 1,500.00

Delivery for control                                                                              DKK 800.00

In certain instances, the Veterinary and Food Administration will need assistance from stevedores in connection with the control of the goods. In those instances, only stevedores that the Port of Kalundborg approves can carry out the task.
