As you may have seen, the Prime Minister announced on Monday 27 February 2023 that the UK Government has reached an agreement in principle with the EU, aimed at addressing post-Brexit problems with the Northern Ireland Protocol.

This agreement, the Windsor Framework, replaces the old Northern Ireland Protocol, dealing with the issues it has created and providing a new legal and UK constitutional framework. It delivers free-flowing trade in goods between Great Britain and Northern Ireland through a new green lane.

What does this mean for you?

  • You do not need to take any action now and should continue to move goods into and out of Northern Ireland in the same way as you currently do
  • Relevant guidance will be updated in due course, and we will give you time to prepare for new requirements

Current guidance can be found on GOV.UK -
