EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement

The Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland is part of the 2019 EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement. As a result of the protocol, Northern Ireland has in effect remained in the EU’s single market for goods. This allows goods to flow between Northern Ireland and Ireland and the rest of the EU as they did while the United Kingdom was a member of the EU.
