Find market access requirement documents for exporting animal products, organic products, processed food products, wine, and plants and plant products to the United Kingdom.

The United Kingdom (UK) includes both Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Until 31 December 2020 the EU requirements for Animal products, Organic Products and Wine continue to apply to products exported to both Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Under this protocol, Northern Ireland will remain aligned with European Union (EU) export requirements and the EU requirements will continue to apply for exports between New Zealand and Northern Ireland even after the transition period ends.
