UK/EU Customs Checks


As a ‘third country’, UK exporters to the EU after Brexit may in future be required to make customs declarations.

  • Are you ready, if the need arises, to apply these to imports from or exports to the EU?

The pack includes guidance on how Customs and Excise could be affected and actions to take now. Information is split by topic and audience, and flowcharts. Future editions of this pack will include information from other government departments responsible for policies that will impact trade at the border:
