Brexit

Brexit - What happens next?

The UK left the European Union on Friday 31 January 2020 at 2300 hours. The UK is now in a transition period which will last until 31 December 2020.

Under the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement the UK remains under EU regulations for plant health, food safety and marketing standards, with customs and border arrangements staying the same during this transition period.

Any new EU regulations and provisions that come into force during the transition period will also apply to the UK. However, as the UK is no longer a member of the EU we will not have voting rights or attend EU meetings, unless invited as an observer.

UK plans for trading with the EU from 1 January 2021

The UK Government has stated that it will not be extending the transition period. Scheduled meetings between the UK Government and the EU are taking place, and the UK Government is sharing information now as it develops proposals for delivering the Northern Ireland Protocol and the Border Delivery Plan. We will keep members advised of developments and will be asking members for feedback on issues and concerns.
