Cork Chamber: A Food & Drink Industry Guide to Customs and Trade post-Brexit

Oct 04, 2017

With the UK being the main destination for Irish agri-food and drink exports in 2016, the Irish agri-food industry will be presented with unprecedented challenges with regard to Customs and Trade, post-Brexit. EEN at Cork Chamber are teaming up with Carol Lynch, Partner in BDO Customs and International Trade Services, to deliver a targeted agri-food workshop on Customs and Trade post-Brexit. Carol has over 25 years’ experience in customs services. The workshop will focus on assisting food and drink companies in preparing for possible customs controls and duties in Ireland-UK trade post-Brexit, based on the various scenarios that may emerge. Whilst we do not know what (if any) trade agreement will be settled upon, it may take a number of formats. What happens if we don’t have a Customs Union, for example?
Brexit will require the lodging of customs import and export declarations, border controls (of some type) and additional compliance and clearance costs. Companies will need to upskill to understand these requirements and will then need to take account of the additional compliance costs they will be facing. This workshop will specifically focus on customs and trade pertaining to agri-food and will include:

  • Cap charges / Meursing rates
  • Licensing costs
  • Non-tariff barriers
  • Quotas
