Since 1st October 2023, businesses in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) can move prepacked retail goods as well as certain loose goods including fruit and vegetables through the “green lane” to Northern Ireland, under the Windsor Framework. Under this Northern Ireland Retail Movement Scheme some food products will need individual product labels with the words ‘Not for EU’. These requirements will be brought in through 3 phases from October 2023 to July 2025.
Phase 1 - From 1 October 2023 all meat products and some dairy products that are moving from Great Britain to Northern Ireland will need to be individually labelled. Find the full list of commodity codes included in phase 1.
Phase 2 - From 1 October 2024, in addition to the phase 1 products, all milk and dairy products moving to Northern Ireland under the Northern Ireland Retail Movement Scheme will need to be individually labelled.
Phase 3 - From 1 July 2025, composite products, fruit, vegetables and fish moving to Northern Ireland under the Northern Ireland Retail Movement Scheme will also need to be individually labelled.
