Government contacts that supply businesses can use to keep medical products flowing into the UK after 31 December 2020.

Import controls

Read about the government’s plan to introduce import controls on EU goods after 31 December 2020.

Business can prepare for border controls by making sure they have an Economic Operator Registration and Identification
(EORI) number and looking into how they want to make declarations, such as using a customs agent.

The government will ensure the facilitation currently available to rest-of-world traders will also be open to those trading
between Great Britain and the EU.

The government has already announced it will implement new border controls in 3 stages leading up to full implementation in
July 2021. Details are set out in the Border Operating Model, published on 13 July 2020.
