WEBINAR: Discussing the Border Model and complexities of trade with Northern Ireland
The UK Government’s Border Operating Model (BOM) was originally published by the Cabinet Office on 13th July 2020, and subsequently updated in December. It is a 159-page plan that documents the processes and systems, across all government departments, that are now in operation at the borders of Great Britain. This has significant impacts on the flow of goods into and out of GB. Companies engaged in trade with the EU have been grappling with this plan, to determine how it impacts their operation, and importantly, what they need to do to keep the flow of goods moving.
Importantly, the plan does not cover the flow of GB goods to Northern Ireland (NI), something that has been made ever more complex due to the Northern Ireland Protocol, negotiated as part of the EU Withdrawal Bill back in 2019. Depending on the nature of goods and whether they will or will not remain in NI (UK Customs Territory), consignments are subject to declarations, documentation and checks when they enter NI.
Join Andrea Collins of The Export Department for this webinar where she will be interpreting the Border Operating Model together with the various obligations involved in trading with Northern Ireland. She will be highlighting the key aspects of both, their practical implications for companies affected, and importantly how companies can adapt.
