UK exit from the EU

We work closely with the industry, government and other organisations to prepare the seafood sector for the opportunities and challenges of Brexit.

Preparing your business for Brexit

We don't know the nature of the relationship which the UK and EU will have when the transition period ends on 31 December 2020. The extent to which the regulatory landscape will change depend on factors including the nature of any future international trade agreements.

We have produced a series of guides to help your business prepare for the changes. They cover a range of topics including trade, food safety, traceability and labelling. 

Trade agreements and seafood tariffs

Advice and support

Our Regulation team can provide bespoke advice and support to your business. They have been responding to issues raised with us by businesses and individuals throughout the seafood supply chain on:

  • Exporting to the EU
  • Importing from the EU
  • Trading with Northern Ireland
  • Food safety concerns

And many, many more!
