Online Training – Trading with Northern Ireland with Mark Rowtbotham of Portcullis – Wednesday, 10th November, 2021


The UK formally left the European Union on the night of 31 December 2020. The UK is now a third country as far as trading with the EU is concerned, but there is a Trade and Co-operation Agreement linking the two entities. Because of the issue of Northern Ireland remaining within the EU Single Market, a separate NI Protocol has been implemented for trade between the UK and Northern Ireland.

This course is designed to enable UK exporters and importers to trade efficiently with Northern Ireland, and to understand all the necessary compliances, requirements and procedures for ensuring that trade with Northern Ireland is carried out with as little inconvenience as possible.

Join Cumbria Chamber of Commerce alongside Mark Rowbotham of Portcullis on Wednesday, 10th November between 10am-1pm.

The online training will cover:

  • The UK as a Sovereign Nation
  • Northern Ireland as part of the EU Single Market
  • Customs Controls between the UK and Northern Ireland
  • Exporting to Northern Ireland
  • The XI EORI Number
  • Cargo Security Measures
