What is the Northern Ireland Protocol?

The Northern Ireland Protocol has been a source of tension since it came into force at the start of 2021.

New talks between the UK and the European Union (EU) were held on 7 October 2022 to try to find a way forward.

What is the Northern Ireland Protocol? The Northern Ireland Protocol is a trading arrangement, negotiated during Brexit talks. It allows goods to be transported across the Irish land border without the need for checks.

Before Brexit, it was easy to transport goods across this border because both sides followed the same EU rules. After the UK left, special trading arrangements were needed because Northern Ireland has an EU land border - the Republic of Ireland.

The EU has strict food rules and requires border checks when certain goods - such as milk and eggs - arrive from non-EU countries.

That's why a new system - the Northern Ireland Protocol - was needed.

How does the protocol work? Instead of checking goods at the Irish border, the protocol agreed that any inspections and document checks would be conducted between Northern Ireland and Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales).

These take place at Northern Ireland's ports.

It was also agreed that Northern Ireland would keep following EU rules on product standards.
