Brexit - Customs, Sanctions and Export Controls

dech  adstechuk

This event is timed to follow shortly after the European Council on 22-23 March that may decide on transitional/interim arrangements and on negotiating guidelines for the UK-EU 'end state' relationship. Speakers from Government Departments will provide an update and respond to questions while speakers from industry will provoke what we hope will be a lively debate and aim to clarify as far as possible, in very practical terms, the key issues for practitioners. This event is open (free of charge) to all ADS/EGADD and techUK members and will be followed by informal drinks. Chatham House Rules will apply.
