Businesses are preparing for significant changes in trade processes at the border with the introduction of the Border Target Operating Model (BTOM).
Medium-risk animal and plant imports from the EU to Great Britain will require Export Health Certificates and Phytosanitary Certificates. As part of ongoing developments, Documentary, Physical, and Identity Checks will be introduced, complemented by the removal of health certification for low-risk global imports, and reduced checks for medium-risk Rest of World animal products. By the close of 2024, Safety and Security Declarations for EU imports will be enforced, incorporating streamlined processes through the UK Single Trade Window and a reduced dataset for imports.
We are delighted to announce the participation of key individuals in our upcoming event. Tom Smith, Director of Borders Group within the Cabinet Office, will be sharing insights on strategy, policy, and readiness concerning the border. Additionally, we will have Anna Thomas, Deputy Director of STW Policy and Strategy, and William Bain, Head of Trade Policy at the British Chambers of Commerce, joining the discussion.
Attend our webinar to understand these changes, the timeframes, and most importantly, the implications for your business.
