Please see summary tables below for figures by risk category; these tables show the volume of goods that would be assigned to each category based on April 2021 to March 2022 customs declaration data.

To note, whilst the consignments below are in scope for the new TOM risk-based approach, some of the consignments are already in scope for SPS controls and so do not represent the net effect of the TOM bringing consignments into scope for controls. Already in scope items include imports from non-EU countries, live animal imports from the EU, and some plant products.
