This is current and interesting discussion and of interest to some members who actually travel to the continent with their caravans.
They will be well aware of the myriad of rules and regulations that differ from country to country that were in place before Brexit and the consequences of falling foul of them.
Brexit has added new rules to the already long list and forums can disseminate this information to those that may be affected.

The thread has been jumped on by some posters who don't even own a caravan let alone tow one to the continent.

The subject is of course relevant to caravanners, but also to anyone who crosses a border, thus the present ownership or otherwise of a caravan has no relevance to who can offer a valid opinion.

I guess that this is where the ROI poses a problem crossing the border? If travelling from England to ROI I wonder if they will have the same restrictions on meat and milk?

Yes they do. And from Great Britain into Northern Ireland too.

I appreciate that there can be problems with things brought in from some countries but the UK has the same rules as the EC at the moment so any problems in either direction is just them being awkward.

Let’s be positive amongst the things you can take into Northern Ireland and the EU are Durian fruit. 😂
South East Asia’s revenge.

You seem to be correct Re them being awkward. As the ruling is not reciprocal.

See.

Until I read this I thought, or assumed, that the Brexit agreement worked both ways.


The unworkability of the ruling is showing already. The disparity can only add to bad feeling.

With the reduction in allowances for bringing in alcohol and tobacco to GB you won’t even be able to find so much solace in drink and tobacco. Unless you live in NI that is. But at least I should be able to bring back my beloved dried/ smoked sausages and tins of cassoulet, so that’s some comfort at least.

Some extra detail. But it changes nothing from what is already learnt about this subject except there is much more detail and explanation.

Here

So you can bring milk and meat into the UK from the EU, but not the reverse. But there is a loophole. You just need to travel by the Faroe islands, or Greenland. For a list of other countries in the link, there is a list of other foods recognised as OK to take into the EU.

The UK is not included, therefore, in this respect we are treated as a country outside of the EU, which of course we are. But so much for the negotiations.

Of courses it may mean that the EU now consider our produce to be suspect. Or perhaps they are just being awkward as Raywood suggested. Or any other guesses.

It’s not a guess but as we have left the EU we are classed as a non EU country and I’m afraid they are rules applicable apart from a very small number of exceptions. If you resign your membership of a club there’s no point in going on about being treated unfairly. Anyone with a complaint really should address it to SW1. We just have to get on with it and make it work.

OC, I could produce.a long answer to that comment, but won’t as it would have the potential to get out of hand. Sufficient to say, if you do not like, understand or respect my opinions, please refrain from commenting.

Quite obviously some people cannot take a warning and continue to make inflammatory remarks about other posters comments.
Therefore this topic is now locked.

Many of you have seen what happened to Swift Talk and the reasons behind the decision to shut it down.

NO PERSON who uses this forum will do that to this Forum, and there will be severe consequences for those who simply cannot control their postings and think that their opinion is the only one.
