BEAMA Brexit Summits

2020-01-24 BEAMA Brexit Summit -  Slides and follow up  

Thanks to those who joined the BEAMA Brexit Summit.  Below are the slides presented during the event,  and a list of the imediate actions agreed at the meeting:  

  • Next 3 weeks - BEAMA EU FTA position paper  - top line views on Rules of Origin,  certification,  product testing,  standards,  tariffs - draft to be shared with members by early Feb. 
  • Members to notify BEAMA of expert contacts to be added to a trade contacts list in BEAMA that will be used to notify member companies of urgent updates relating to trade negotiations,  and urgent requests for evidence/data to support positions. Email [email protected] to be added.  
  • Members are invited to respond to a BEIS survey on CE and UKCA marking all information provided will remain confidential.  BEIS are also looking to interview companies on this subject and if members are able to do so please contact [email protected]  BEAMA encourages members to do so as this direct feedback from companies will amount to important evidence in support of our shared views re the applicability of UKCA marking and continued use of CE. 
  • BEAMA will work up a framework which members can feed into a review of potential Rules of Origin requirements for member's products e.g. exemptions, and share this with members for consultation.  Expected Feb 2020.
