BREXIT NOTICE: Importing from the UK in the event of a No-Deal Brexit

3 May 2019

In the event of a disorderly (no-deal) Brexit, the United Kingdom will become a “third-country” i.e. one which is outside the European Union’s regulatory control, without an agreed trading partnership.

As such, any imports of live aquatic animals and aquatic animal products to Ireland originating in the UK will be subject to additional checks and controls in order to ensure they comply with our existing zoosanitary and animal health standards. Further information on the implications for importing live animals and animal products into Ireland from the UK in the event of a disorderly Brexit can be found on the Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine’s website at the links below.
