The Transition Period, which followed the UK’s departure from the European Union earlier this year, will end on 31 December 2020. This means that a number of new formalities and control processes will come into force on 1 January 2021.

Stella Jarvis, Director – UK Border & Protocol Delivery Group & Judith Gough, Ambassador to Sweden and Director for the Nordic Baltic Network, are pleased to invite you to an 'Industry Day Readiness Webinar'.

The webinar will bring together British officials from various Government Departments to address key questions from companies across the EU and EEA/EFTA countries.

We look forward to hosting you at the webinar!
