Online Webinar


Whatever shape Brexit finally takes, it’s clear that there will likely be a multitude of significant changes from January 1st 2021, and whilst preparations have been made by companies, recent member experiences have shown that some details are tricky to see in the range and complexity of this situation.

There have been lots of ‘get ready’ events for Brexit, and indeed this time last year we were running exactly that. Consultant Jim Kilpatrick from Manufacturing Improvement Services – one of our presenters for those sessions – has continued to work with several companies to support their actions on some of the detailed challenges that have since become clearer. Discussion with him this week has suggested a much more practical overview based on real issues, risks, and actions arising would make a more useful overview for members on the topic at this time.


Jim’s session will share some of those recently detailed learnings and specific examples covering topics such as:

  • Impact of Incoterms (why it’s important)
  • Commodity Codes (how to select and the potential tariffs)
  • Country of Origin (when you can change it and when you can’t)
  • Responsibility for exporting – and importing
  • Customs declarations and duty/tax payment/deferment
  • CE marking Responsible/Authorised person and UKCA marking
  • Providing services to the EU from the UK and vice-versa
  • Summary of potential risks and actions

Join us on Thursday 3rd December, at 1 pm to hear an overview and practical advice from Jim in these areas, with the opportunity to ask questions during the event if time allows, or in follow up after the session.
