90 Day Grace Period ends in:

We provide a Single Window for a compliant and faster movement across borders


Join the TrustedTrader platform to gain immediate access to a 'trusted trader' accreditation program and a 'trusted trader' status on a provisional basis..


A 'trusted trader' is any organisation who would like to operate at an AEO level or other international equivalent in order to benefit from a quicker and more efficient path through customs and border controls.

The 'trusted trader' status will demonstrate that the registered organisation meets pre-defined standards in customs related activities.

Through the use of the TrustedTrader platform, registered organisations will be able to demonstrate that their operational controls, standards and procedures are at the appropriate level as outlined and in compliance with the 'trusted trader' framework within this platform.

Now that the UK has exited the European Union it is ever more important to have access to such features. A 90 day grace period has been introduced to help ease cross border movement however, once it has ended goods may become subject to tariffs when crossing into Northern Ireland.

New SPS Regulations effective
01 January 2021.

As the UK has left the EU, increased import/export regulations will create more friction in trade between Britain, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and the rest of the EU.

The Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) regulations that the EU has put in place will result in extra administration for UK exports into Europe and Northern Ireland.

This will place a responsibility on all members to provide the data required to create full SPS declarations.
