On 31st January the UK officially left the EU and entered a period of negotiations on what our new future relationship with the EU will look like – the ‘transition period’.

This transition period will end on 31st December 2020. During this time the UK is no longer represented in the EU institutions, agencies, bodies and offices but is bound by EU law meaning all existing trade, travel and regulatory arrangements remain.

Any new rules and procedures will be dependent on the outcomes of the discussions currently taking place and are expected to come into effect from 1st January 2021.

The Government has already made some announcements, such as the plans to introduce new import controls and a new UK Global Tariff, but many other areas are still under discussion.

The BFFF continues to monitor the negotiations and with the use of this area, will endeavour to keep the membership up to date. Please check back regularly for updates.

The latest position Government position can be found on the gov.uk website.
