Borders Operating Model

On Demand

**Please Note: We will be starting this event at 11:03 in observance of Remembrance Day

What do you need to know and do before 31 December 2020?

The webinar will provide you with an overview of high level preparations for UK /EU trade and the Border Operating Model and will help you to understand:

  • General requirements and preparation for UK importers and exporters
  • How to comply with new border readiness and traffic management processes
  • Customs controls

Holyrood's managing editor, Mandy Rhodes, will explore these issues with UK Government officials from the Cabinet Office’s Border and Protocol Delivery Group (BPDG) and the Department for Transport.

Hear directly from the experts working on the detail and ask the questions that are top of your mind. 

On 1 January 2021 the transition period with the European Union will end, and the United Kingdom will operate a full, external border as a sovereign nation. This means that controls will be placed on the movement of goods between Great Britain and the EU.

To afford industry extra time to make necessary arrangements, the UK Government has taken the decision to introduce the new border controls in three stages up until 1 July 2021.
