In case it’s still a bit confusing. New #Brexit plan, "2 borders for 4 years", means:

* Separation of border functions into two different borders
* Traders needing to provide information twice
* Possibly two sets of checks

/1
1) Regulatory border in the Irish Sea (GB/NI)

*Not a customs border so no declarations, tariffs etc.
*BUT notifications and info needs to be provided to 'appropriate authorities'
*Detailed info on each consignment required incl type of goods, where produced, to/from etc

/2
*Regulatory checks, such as SPS checks also needed in addition to info provided to authorities AHEAD of each shipment

/3
2) Customs border in Northern Ireland (NI/ROI)

*Customs formalities and tariffs apply
*Two ways to move goods either transit or pre-lodged declaration
*Simplifications for trusted traders/ AEOs (not sure what kind - probably some sort of aggregated/delayed decls)

/4
*Under both options goods move under customs supervisions (surveillance).
*In the absence of super-tech option this means sealed containers, guarantees, max admin
*Exemptions for SMEs (not sure what's the cut-off point) no tariffs, no declarations/procedures

/5
The entire plan:
*Doesn't exist anywhere else (who would want it)
*Is not provided for by the EU's customs legislation i.e. would require the EU to break/amend its own law and grant the UK privileges it never offered anyone else
*Max complexity for traders
*Not frictionless
/end
