Three phases of border controls introduced starting January 2021

Following the meeting of the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement Joint Committee on Friday, 12 June 2020, the United Kingdom has formally notified the European Union that it will neither accept nor seek any extension to the current Transition Period ending on 31 December 2020.

Manufacturers advised to prepare for the end of the transition period

The fourth round of negotiations between the European Union and the United Kingdom took place between 2-5 June 2020.

Companies that have not yet prepared for this eventuality are recommended to take the necessary precautions to keep access to the British market.
