Statement made on 20 July 2021

Statement UIN HLWS200


Today, the Government will publish an updated Border Operating Model. This will reflect the revised timetable for introduction of the next stage of UK import requirements as well as including additional detail on policies and processes.

This updated Border Operating Model will continue to help businesses, which trade with the EU, to understand the approaching new requirements as well as those which are already in effect. We are also encouraging businesses to go to to gain access to the host of resources the Government has created to assist traders.

A copy of the updated Border Operating Model has been deposited in the Libraries of both Houses.
