The Government has been engaging with the European Commission including through the UK/EU annual Trade Specialised Committee on Customs Cooperation and Rules of Origin.

The EU has expressed the need for consultation with the UK to take into account potential implications for Northern Ireland.

The Government published an Explanatory Memorandum in August 2023 setting out relevant considerations in relation to the EU’s proposed reforms. As the reforms develop, we will continue to monitor the progress and to assess any potential impacts on UK businesses.
