Webinar: Trading with the EU and Rest of World. New rules apply.

  • This event has passed.

The UK has left the EU customs union and single market.

There are new rules for businesses that came into force on 1 January 2021 which require immediate action. If you do not take action now, there is a risk that your business operations will be interrupted.

This webinar from The Department for International Trade (DIT) will help UK businesses understand the new trading rules.

You will learn about:

  • The UK’s Global Tariff for imports
  • Trade Agreements
  • UK’s Generalised Scheme of Preferences
  • Government Procurement Agreement
  • Exports of dual use items from GB to EU
  • Trade Remedies
  • Reporting Market Access Barriers

In our webinar on Wednesday 20th January, you will hear from:

  • Graham Zebedee, Director, Continuity Negotiations and Development, Department for International Trade (DIT)
  • Martin Cook, Deputy Director, UK Regions, Department for International Trade (DIT)
