Supporting UK Composites


Transition Period

The UK has left the EU. There is now a transition period until the end of 2020 while the UK and EU negotiate additional arrangements.

The current rules on trade, travel, and business for the UK and EU will continue to apply during the transition period.

On 13 July, the UK Government launched a major new public information campaign called 'The UK's new start: let's get going' to give everyone the facts they need to prepare for 1 January 2021. A straightforward checker tool at will quickly identify the specific steps any business or individual needs to take to be ready, and will allow companies to sign up for bespoke updates. Taking these steps will equip businesses for when we exit the transition period.

Composites UK is working with other trade assocaitions in the manfuacturing sector through Make UK to present a united position to UK Government and support 4 key areas:

  • avoid the disruption of leaving without a trade deal
  • deliver the ambitious market access promised by the Government
  • allow adequate time to prepare and implement changes
  • support and protect jobs across the country and the economy

You should prepare for change now and subscribe to Composites UK member email updates about any additional arrangements and details specific to our sector.
