Changes in how you trade from 1 January 2021

The EU-UK Trade Cooperation Agreement is in place.

There are no tariffs or quotas under the agreement as long as products meet the necessary rules of origin. However, there are significant change for the industry with the introduction of customs controls, plant health, food safety and labelling requirements, as we have been briefing members.

Any UK business which imports and exports fresh fruit, vegetables, plants and cut flowers from/to the EU should read the current edition of the Border Operating Model for GB and the Northern Ireland which we have shared with FPC members.

We have published two guides for FPC members:

The FOURTH edition of the FPC Guide to Importing to the UK in 2021 (May 2021) and the FOURTH edition of the FPC Guide to Exporting from the UK in 2021 (April 2021).

Several continuity trade agreements are still under discussion with key trading partners, without which certain UK imports will face UK global tariffs. You need to be aware of the impact of the UK tariffs on your products.

We will keep members advised of developments in our regular updates. We ask members to continue to feedback on issues and concerns. You can also check for the latest advice here and in the news section below.
