Cádiz, Spain (PortSEurope) August 11, 2019 – The construction of a Border Inspection Post (PIF – Poste d’Inspection Frontalier), to be located in the New Container Terminal of the Port of the Bay of Cádiz, continues with the execution, this week, of the building piles.
A total of €4.37 million ($4.94 million) will be invested in the project and the execution period is 14 months.
To regulate the borders after the elimination of the internal borders of the European Union, the so-called Border Inspection Posts were enabled. They are the only points of entry into the EU of certain goods from third countries (for example, products of animal origin or plant health controls). BIPs have adequate facilities, with cold rooms, laboratories, inspection and storage rooms, which allow inspecting products of animal origin, both for human consumption and non-human consumption, live animals and plants undergoing phytosanitary inspection, by part of the corresponding services and are essential for the competitiveness of the ports.
In the new BIP, Animal Health, Plant Health, Foreign Health, the Official Service of Inspection, Surveillance and Regulation of Foreign Trade (SOIVRE) and Customs will be present. For this, in the design of the new property, the needs of each of these organisations have been taken into account.
