The UK Government has issued a 24 page booklet and website with guidance for UK Hauliers and Commercial Drivers on transporting goods between the UK and the European Union in the event of a No Deal Brexit.
The guidance provides insights and information on a range of issues that may arise, for example obtaining the correct licences and permits for travel on both sides of the border. Information has also been provided for customs declarations for traders, processes that should be considered and followed before, during and after transition of products over the UK-EU border, as well as specific guidance for the transportation of animal, plant and other controlled products from the UK to the EU.
The booklet also contains details on regulations for UK and EU hauliers with regards to securing their vehicles when moving between the UK and European Union.
The online guidance will be updated if a deal is agreed. The full guidance and downloadable PDF booklet can be found at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/transporting-goods-between-the-uk-and-eu-in-a-no-deal-brexit-guidance-for-hauliers.
