Brexit transition: Stakeholder guidance on EU rules in relation to import/export licences for certain goods

Brexit transition: Stakeholder guidance on EU rules in relation to import/export licences for certain goods
Published on: 23/03/2020
Since 1 February 2020, the UK has withdrawn from the EU. The ‘withdrawal agreement’ provides for a transition period ending on 31 December 2020. As of 1 January 2021, there will be broad and far-reaching consequences, regardless of the outcome of ongoing Brexit negotiations. Stakeholders must make sure they are ready for them.

To assist, the European Commission is reviewing, and where necessary updating, the over 100 sector-specific stakeholder ‘preparedness notices’ it published during the Article 50 negotiations with the United Kingdom.

An updated so-called ‘notice for readiness’ for the Chemicals sector will be issued where necessary.

In the meantime, please find the preparedness notice below.
