Data shows a 1500% increase of checks at post-Brexit ports

Since Brexit, circa one consignment in every 200 is rejected in health checks on imports from Britain at Irish ports, mostly due to incomplete paperwork. This increase, which specifically concerns consignments of food & plant products and live animals, comes as a result of a rise in inspections, with numbers growing from less than 100 a week before Brexit to about 1,700 a week. This was made clear in recent data from the Department of Agriculture.

The majority of British products going through the new border controls covering sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) checks — 47,000 out of 53,000 consignments — are coming through Dublin Port. More than 50,000 checks this year compares with less than 5,000 last year.
