Ministry of Defence Alerts Industry Partners to end of Brexit Transition Period

The Brexit Transition Period has ended and new rules now apply.

Please find below a letter from Andrew Forzani, Chief Commercial Officer at the MOD. 

Dear Industry Partner, 

I am writing to you as a Defence supplier following the end of the Transition Period, and the agreement of a deal between the UK and the European Union. 

The deal means changes in the way that you do business, and I would urge you to look at the Explainer Document and supporting documents that have been published on GOV.UK. These contain a great deal of information on the practical implications of the trade agreement, and can be accessed at the following link:


It is essential that all businesses have prepared for the changes and opportunities the UK’s new trading relationship with the EU will bring. If you have not already done so, please visit: https://www.gov.uk/transition to understand the actions you need to take.
