A recording of this webinar is now available to listen to online.
With much talk of the impending trade agreement deadline, and accusations of bad faith being traded in both directions, businesses that have been working to cope with the effects of the pandemic must now focus on the implications and practicalities for businesses once the transition period ends on 31 December 2020.
It is not like the end of January when the UK legally left the EU. Deal or no deal, the end of the transition period brings implications on compliance to both UK and EU regulatory regimes, rules of origin for products, product labelling, market access requirements for the services sector and data privacy, to name just a few (with, of course, the possibility of tariffs and quotas in case of no deal). With many industries due to be affected, we explore some of the granular issues that could have huge implications for businesses.
Hosted by international affairs advisor Matthew Kirk, we are delighted to be joined by John Springford, deputy director of the Centre for European Reform; Ruta Aisthorpe, head of international of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT); and Nicola Smith, director in our Environment, Safety and Health Practice.
