16 Jun Border Controls Announcement – Brexit Transition

New GB border arrangements have been confirmed for next year as the UK formally notifies the EU that it will neither accept nor seek any extension to the Transition Period.

Border controls for EU goods imported into Great Britain will be introduced in stages at the end of the Transition Period to give businesses affected by coronavirus more time to prepare.

In addition there will be a new GB border infrastructure to carry out checks and £50 million of grants to accelerate growth of the UK’s current customs intermediaries’ sector.

New border controls and procedures were confirmed for 2021 as the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Michael Gove, formally notifies the EU that the UK will neither accept nor seek any extension to the Transition Period.

From 1 January 2021 the UK will have the autonomy to introduce its own approach to goods imported to GB from the EU.
