🚛🐟 Brexit No Deal Alert 🐟🚛

1/11 - I had a really useful informative meeting with the NI Fisheries Brexit team at @daera_ni in #Downpatrick today. They are planning for a No Deal #brexit on 31 October
Here’s what will happen...
2/11 - On Day 1 of ‘no deal’ all NI fish exports to EU must be accompanied by a Catch Certificate. At present UK processes approx 300 Catch Certs a year. No Deal will increase this to at least 200,000 a year
3/11 - The Catch Cert also means Transport Details required as per below including truck details for transit. In modern supply chains, this can change quickly and frequently
4/11 - The Catch Certificate must then be validated and sent to the EU Importer at least 2 hours before arriving at EU frontier to enable the competent authority to check load if applicable at a BIP.
5/11 - Fish entering NI from EU, a digital hard border is planned that will restrict, trace and inspect so physical inspections on a consignment arriving from ROI to Kilkeel would take place at processing site in Kilkeel.
*Nearly all 🦐 caught in ROI goes North for processing
6/11 - The other big hurdle is Export Health Certs:
- paperwork submitted via EU TRACES system 24hrs in advance of arriving at frontier Border Inspection Post (BIP)
- 🚛 must have copy of EHC for any fish product in its load
- huge problem for same day fresh fish from NI to ROI
7/11 - #Newry Mourne & Down region of NI estimate seafood businesses there would be submitting approx 60,000 EHCs a year!
* one business that supplies the ROI hospitality trade would have to submit 150 EHCs daily!
8/11 - DAERA advise that all fish exports would have to depart NI via a designated site approved by EU.
Environmental Health officers & vets would have to be on-site and oversee 100% exports.
Huge cost and staffing constraint for local govt and DAERA
9/11 - Some say that majority of NI fish is sold to GB (approx 60%)
Let’s clear this up:
1 specific business processes NI & ROI 🦐 to make scampi which is sold to GB market.
When you remove their figures, DAERA confirm between 80-90% of all NI seafood is sold to the EU!
10/11 - In summary, No Deal Brexit = tariffs, layers of admin, changes to supply chain, delays, EHC & Catch Certs for nearly all NI seafood exporters.
Value of fresh fish reduces by the hour, 24hr EHC notice period will impact sales to ROI/EU
Jeopardises the entire industry
11/11 - Finally how do we know what procedures EU will impose on UK/NI 🐟🦐 in a No Deal?
Because the procedures are already in place 👇 #weneedadeal
