Webinar with Hector Velasquez-Estay: BREXIT blues – food chain blocked, broken or better?
On 31st January 2020 the UK exited the EU and will be in a transition period until 31 December 2020. In theory an extension to same day in 2021 or 2022 is on the table but the UK Government has already ruled out requesting one before the cut-off day, 30 June 2020. For the time being there are no major changes to the relationship between the UK and the EU, for example no hard border with EU countries though UK companies are no longer in the EU and required to have an EU representative office in order to carry on selling into the EU market and maintain the validity of their feed additive registrations.
Watch our webinar and get an in-depth review of the economic effects of various post-BREXIT scenarios on the UK and EU feed industries, highlighting the inevitable uncertainties covering Northern Ireland, the transition period, and the need for independent representation of UK and EU companies in the two geographical areas, once no longer under common EU legislative frameworks.
