The European Commission has issued practical guidance to help companies prepare for the changes from 1 January 2021 after the end of the transition period. This mainly relates to the changes that will certainly take place, regardless of the future trade relationship. The guidance is important for companies in the recreational boating sector with business relationships to the UK. The guidance includes
- Commission Communication on readiness at the end of the transition period (with information on customs checks, certification, VAT, etc.) – see here
- Stakeholder notice for the RCD sector (updated in June – see here)
- Stakeholder notice for industrial products (last updated in March – see here)
All stakeholder notices can be found here. EBI encourages companies to closely follow the recommendations and prepare for the end of the transition periods. Questions for clarifications can be sent to the EBI Office.
