There have been several news articles about the ’green lane’ under the Windsor Framework entering into force for Northern Ireland over the weekend, which is not entirely true.

The first green lane part releated to food was introduced on October 1st, while the Customs Green Lane is not introduced until October 2024.

Read my colleague & friend Rob Hardy(Robert Hardy) below & everthing is explained.

Yesterday U2 had the premiere of the long announced and awaited new live show at Las Vegas Sphere.

The Guardian writes: ’U2 have never been a band noted for their love of shy understatement, but even by their standards, their arrival in Las Vegas represents a hitherto-unimagined degree of grandiosity’ and grants the concert a five stars review.

”“Elvis has definitely not left this building,”

Bono at the Spehere premiere

With an overall an overwhelming reception with outstanding reviews in most media, a new success for the the greatest rock band on Earth. This time for the first time without one if the original band members, Larry Mullen Jr – who due to health reasons is temporarily replaced by Bram van den Berg.

Paul McCartney was among the celebrities who attended Friday, along with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich, Katy Perry, Flavor Flav and assorted music-industry executives, whom Bono thanked by name at the end of the show — one reminder that Sphere is as much a part of this gig as U2.

As the band played “All I Want Is You,” which Bono dedicated to Mullen, and “Love Rescue Me,” which he dedicated to the late Jimmy Buffett, Sphere’s screens eased up on the steroidal laser-light-show psychedelia, as though U2’s members wanted to remind us that they’re just, y’know, regular guys.


Is your supply chain ready for the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism?

The new CBAM regulation enters into force today, October 1st.

As the European Union continues its efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030, and aims to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, new regulations affecting transport, industry, and production, are coming into effect.

Greenhouse gas emissions data for imports needs to be collected and reported for six product groups in the first phase – with more to come.

The reporting will need to be done quarterly, with the first reports to be submitted on 31 January 2024.

Are you ready? Do you have your analysis done? Do you know what & how to report?
