Brexit

Prepare now for changes in how you trade from 1 January 2021

Trading with the EU will change on 1 January 2021. There will be significant new requirements for pre-notification of imports and clearance of consignments, irrespective of the outcome of trade negotiations. It is therefore really important for FPC members to engage and prepare now.

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 continue to work with the UK Government to press for essential information which is missing from the Border Operating Model and the Northern Ireland Protocol. Members can see our Letter to Ministers outlining our key concerns about future trading.

The first editions of the FPC Guide to Importing to the UK in 2021 and the FPC Guide to Exporting from the UK in 2021 have been published. An updated edition of the BOM model has been published and information has been incorporated in our GPC Guides. There is still more detail to follow and we will share with our members as soon as we can. FPC members can find below the checklists covering Importing, Exporting, and guidance on trading with Northern Ireland, as well as the Importers Guide.

As well as the EU-UK trade negotiations, 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.
