Animal, Plant and Food safety standards to be serious implications facing Ireland post Brexit.

Animal, Plant and Food safety standards to be serious problems post Brexit implications

The Europeans health commissioner, Vytenis Andriukaitis, has said recently that he expects the main

post Brexit implications to be Animal, plant and food safety standards.

Mr. Andriukaitis said that sanitary and phytosanitary standards are currently vital in all EU trade

deals, and that this could diverge post Brexit. He says the would result in lengthy border checks

being carried out. This means that all of Irelands trade to the UK would face stringent checks upon

their arrival across borders. Irelands exports to the UK currently total 40% of all our exports, this

means we would be more affected than any other nation within the EU.

Mr. Andriukaitis said “"At the moment, they have the same pan-European food safety standards.

They have no separate standards. My questions to the UK is, what can they do with those standards?

How they can develop? From our side, it's very important to understand,".

The second phase Brexit talks are not expected to take place until December at the earliest meaning

no discussion on standards will take place until then.
