Consumer Goods and Retail Business Readiness Forum, 11 September 2019

BEIS invites you a seminar of preparing for Brexit (live and webinar) on the 11th of September. See below for details and their invitation.

"The Prime Minister has announced that the UK will be leaving the EU on 31st October.  It is therefore essential that businesses make appropriate preparations for our departure.

We would like to invite you to the Retail & Consumer Goods Brexit Forum at BEIS in the Conference Centre and broadcast via Webex at 1:00pm Wednesday 11th September and will last approximately two hours. This event will cover many of the key areas that your businesses and members will need to prepare for, including:

  •                Customs and the border arrangements
  •                Tariffs and trade
  •                EU citizens in your workforce
  •                Product regulations (but not food, which will be handled by Defra)
  •                Digital and data
  •                Intellectual property

Places at our Conference Centre will be limited and so we advise early registration. However, the event will also be broadcast via Webex for those unable to attend in person, or if capacity is exceeded.
