Trade and customs after Brexit: Key dates in 2021

Since a trade deal has been agreed between the UK and the EU, businesses must ensure they are up to date with changing rules and regulations surrounding their business operations. Key dates for companies to note in 2021 are listed below. 

More dates will be added as trade policy develops. For example, potential changes to commodity codes, agreements - if any - between the UK and EU on Mutual Recognition/adequacy and around Trade in Services.

In addition to the impact of the key dates noted below there are impacts that have already arisen as a result of the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement for example on Rules of Origin, Bilateral Cumulation and Recognition of Professional Qualifications
