Impact of Brexit on International Trade Practice and Procedures – NEW COURSE

9:15 – 12:30 


The recent publication of The UK Government White Paper suggests that the UK will be seeking a new strategic relationship with the European Union encompassing a free trade agreement. The White Paper implies that World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules will form the basis of our future trading relationships with the rest of the world, and these could also have a very significant effect. Whatever the final form of these agreements, existing UK trading practice and procedures with The EU and Rest of World are going to change. Every company that trades with the European Union and Rest of World will have to consider the implications. The implied increased level of administration will have an impact on costs which may have to be reflected in the selling price of the goods unless means of mitigation can be found. This half day seminar will consider some possible positive and negative effects of Brexit on future international trade practice and procedures. It will give a brief overview of the current UK trading position and will examine the possible changes under various Brexit scenarios. The seminar will be relevant to those who have strategic and practical responsibility for international trade, those involved in international sales and purchasing and shipping and logistics personnel.
