SGS To Host A Webinar to Help You Prepare Your Food Business For 1 January 2021

October 12, 2020
Food Certification Webinar from SGS United Kingdom Ltd

SGS’s Webinar Will Explain the Post Brexit Food Regulations and Potential Implications for UK Trade.

The potential impact of Brexit for the food and beverage sector is huge, be it on trade, inward investment, labour and employment or policy and regulation. Brexit is not just a concern for UK food producers but also for any food manufacturer (EU and non-EU) serving the UK market.

The EU accounts for c.70% of UK food and non-alcoholic drinks and these goods will go from being traded seamlessly on the EU’s Single Market to becoming products that are exported and imported, with an inevitable increase in friction regardless of the outcome of current negotiations with the EU. 

When the transition period ends on 1 January 2021, the terms on which food and drink are traded between the UK and EU will change.

  • Complying with the US Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)
