New trader scheme will come into effect this Sunday

UK-EU body to meet ahead of next step in the Windsor Framework

The Windsor Framework, agreed on by the EU and UK in February, is the revised post-Brexit deal for Northern Ireland. Now, the UK-EU body overseeing the implementation of the Windsor Framework is due to meet, ahead of a major step in implementing the deal.

This Sunday, a new system for moving goods from Great Britain to Northern Ireland will come into effect. The framework is intended to ease post-Brexit trade between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK. It modifies the Northern Ireland Protocol, the 2019 deal which kept Northern Ireland inside the EU's single market for goods.

That arrangement keeps the Irish land border open, but has meant products arriving into Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK are subject to checks and controls. On Sunday, a new trusted trader scheme will come into effect with a system of green and red lanes at NI ports. The green lane/red lane system is supposed to reduce bureaucracy for GB goods which have Northern Ireland as their final destination.
