With the Brexit transition period due to end soon, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is hosting webinars to help key sectors, including the housewares industry, to prepare for change.
The webinars are highlighting actions that retailers and suppliers need to take when the UK has left the EU single market customs union after December 31. They are designed to guide businesses through the changes, which include how to import and export goods, the process for hiring people from the EU, and how to provide services in EU markets.
Retail was the focus for the webinar on October 14, while consumer goods is the sector addressed on October 22.
Housewares retailers and suppliers can register to view both live and recorded webinars at bit.ly/UKTwebinar
The government has also launched an online transition checker for businesses and individuals at www.gov.uk/transition
