SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification
company, has published an article that summarizes Brexit, it’s impact on trade,
and possible solutions for creating frictionless trade.
The UK’s surprise vote for Brexit on June 23, 2016, led to a long
and convoluted process of withdrawal and negotiation. This ultimately resulted
in a trade deal between the UK and EU but its impact on trade has been
significant. Since the UK is no longer part of the EU’s single customs union,
businesses are finding it difficult to adapt to the new procedures.
SGS’s Consumer Compact article looks at the background to Brexit,
it’s impact on trade, and details what SGS is doing to help businesses enjoy
frictionless trade between the UK and the EU. Among the solutions SGS has
developed are customs transit solutions in 25 countries and full customs broker
services in the Netherlands, Belgium and the UK. They can act as the importer
or exporter’s representative, declaring shipments to customs and expediting the
release of goods.
