Export inspection


Horses can be submitted for export inspection at the Ekkelkamp site from 8.30 am to 4 pm. The inspections are organised by the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA). Both the horse and the means of transport will be inspected.

Fees for export inspections

Horse filly/pony smaller than 150 cm € 25 each
Horse (first 4 horses) € 50 each
Horses (5 or more) € 35 each

After 4 pm, the NVWA's hourly rate will be added at € 280 per hour.

If a horse is rejected, the inspection fee will still be charged.

There is parking space adjacent to the export terrain reserved for vehicles used for export transport only.

All export transport vehicles must be clean, empty and disinfected before they can be loaded. If this is not the case you may still clean and disinfect the transport vehicle on the export terrain.

Costs of cleaning and disinfecting:

Truck / trailer and semitrailer € 15
Large truck € 10
Horse trailer € 5
