European Business needs a Seamless Customs Transition to avoid a Heavy Blow from Brexit

Brexit Transitional Period must be agreed as soon as possible to protect EU and UK competitiveness and ensure a frictionless customs and trade environment can be maintained, say businesses and trade bodies, representing companies of all sizes from across industry invested in both the EU and the UK.

CLECAT, co-signing the statement, strongly urges EU and UK negotiators to put legal certainty and predictability for business and trade at the top of their negotiating agenda.  The priority for customs is the guarantee of a seamless transition period after March 2019, which replicates the current commercial, regulatory and trading environment.

The Statement is available here.
