On 31 January at 23.00, the UK will leave the European Union. From this time the UK will then enter an implementation period with the EU lasting until 31 December 2020.
During this implementation period, the UK will continue to follow EU rules and regulations despite leaving EU institutions such as the European Council, Commission and Parliament. In practical terms for ADS members, this should mean ‘business as usual’ in relation to trading with EU nations and the movement of people for the duration of the implementation period.
ADS will continue to work with industry and Government during the implementation period to make sure the UK secures the best possible trade deal for our sectors. ADS has produced and collated guidance for businesses to prepare for Brexit which can be found on the links below.
The Brexit Hub will be your main source of information on how the UK’s departure from the European Union will impact the Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space sectors. ADS’s priority is to help our sectors remain globally competitive and guide you through the potential impacts Brexit might have.
