Joint Committee decisions on the Northern Ireland Protocol

The EU & UK have agreed how to fully implement the Northern Ireland Protocol, after coming to decisions in the EU-UK Joint Committee. The Joint Committee have agreed rules on how goods will move between Northern Ireland and Great Britain, including how they can avoid tariffs. These rules will come into force regardless if the EU & UK agree a future relationship or if there is "no deal" . The two sides have also agreed for some temporary grace periods for goods such as Agri-food and medicines, to give Northern Ireland businesses time to prepare for the new rules and checks.
