In February 2023 the UK and EU agreed the Windsor Framework, which has replaced the old Northern Ireland Protocol. The Windsor Framework sets out new arrangements regarding the movement of goods into, out of, or through Northern Ireland. Specific detail on these arrangements can be found at the links held on this page. The legal texts underpinning the Framework can be found on the Windsor Framework page here
There is also information available on Northern Ireland Executive owned sites where policy is devolved, for example, the NI Department for Agriculture, Environment and Rural affairs’ Landing Page
The government has launched the free-to-use Trader Support Service which will help businesses and traders prepare for the changes that will affect your business if you move goods into and out of Northern Ireland.
The Movement Assistance Scheme will help businesses to meet new requirements for moving animals, plants and associated products from Great Britain to Northern Ireland. This includes advice to businesses through a dedicated helpline and means traders will not need to pay certification costs.
