During the transition period, the UK is no longer a member of the EU’s political structures. However, it remains in the Single Market, Customs Union and Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). In practice, this means that EU rules continue to apply. The UK continues to trade as if it is an EU member state - with no changes to current import/export practices - until the end of 2020.

We will continue to review and amend it as circumstances evolve.
