Preparing for Brexit on 29 March 2019
It is likely that the full details of any potential deal with the EU will not become public until the final few days of negotiations before the 29th March 2019. As and when this happens the BCFA will provide guidance on how this will impact BCFA members.
In the event that there is no agreement the Government has begun to publish technical notices to help business prepare in the event of a no-deal scenario. These notices range from product labelling and regulations through to importing and exporting. Here is the link to the notices themselves, which are available on the Gov.UK website.
The Government has confirmed that it will continue to publish guidance on a no deal scenario and we will ensure that links this guidance will be available here.
We have also arranged the first of a series of BCFA Implications of Brexit Seminar on Wednesday 24th October
