Brexit and plant protection products
January 20, 2020The UK’s withdrawal from the European Union (EU) will have many implications for business. The mechanisms by which companies have been able to trade with each other within a single marketplace are entrenched in commercial practice across Europe. This paper aims to explain how the current EU trading system works – from the Customs Union and the Single Market, to tariff-free trade. It also explores the possible implications of Brexit for agribusiness, and the sale and movement of plant protection products in the future. As we highlight throughout, the UK’s exit from the EU is going to be a long and complex process. Here, we hope to clarify the reality of what is possible so that you can develop a plan for a post-Brexit world.
