The government has introduced new legislation to make changes to how the Northern Ireland Protocol will apply. You should continue to use the guidance below for now. It will be updated in due course, giving you time to prepare for any new requirements.
The Movement Assistance Scheme means that if you’re:
a trader moving agrifood goods from Great Britain to Northern Ireland, you do not need to pay for some inspections and certificates or some other costs you incur because of the Northern Ireland Protocol
We've added how to claim some scrapie qualifying status costs back if you have scrapie qualifying status.
Information added to explain how traders can get reimbursed for costs of getting support attestations for movements of agri-food goods from Great Britain to Northern Ireland from 27 September 2021.
We've updated the guidance for traders and certifiers.
Traders can receive financial support for the International Seed Testing Association (ISTA) sample testing and certification costs required for all individual seed lots traded from Great Britain to Northern Ireland.
Exporters in Great Britain can receive financial support to meet new costs if they move organics to Northern Ireland only. Importers in Northern Ireland can also get financial support to meet new costs they incur to receive these goods from Great Britain.
A trader moving agrifood goods from Great Britain to Northern Ireland does not need to pay for some inspections and certificates or some other costs.
Added that some categories of high risk food and feed not of animal origin as goods now included in the scheme.
