|Webinar reminder: understanding the UK government’s new approach to EU goods entering Britain
Last week, following the government announcement that Britain is adopting a new approach to post-Brexit checks on imports from the EU, we informed you that we have made important updates to our planned webinar (originally focused on the introduction of ENS declarations).
Tomorrow’s session now focuses on what the government’s new approach means for you and your business.
During the session at 2pm on Thursday 12 May, we will be covering:
- What rules and checks have already been introduced
- Changes to requirements that were due to come into effect on 1 July
- What traders now need to do to comply with post-Brexit rules
- What digitized checks could look like for traders
This webinar was originally titled ‘Entry Summary (ENS) Declarations – what you need to know ahead of 1 July’. It has since been repurposed following the news that Britain is adopting a new approach to post-Brexit checks on imports from the EU. On Thursday 28 April, the government announced that ENS declarations will not be required for EU goods entering Britain after 1 July.
Under the previous Border Operating Model Plan, these declarations would have been required from this date. The sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) checks that were due to be introduced at the start of July for several animal-origin and plant-based goods have also been put on hold. Instead, the government has said that full import checks won’t come into effect until the end of 2023 and that it is going to use the time before then to move towards digitising customs and SPS checks.
There is still time to register for this free webinar and submit your questions to the IOE&IT experts – they will be answering as many questions as possible.
