Event description
The most comprehensive guide to Brexit readiness for the UK fashion and textile industry

About this Event

The UK Fashion & Textile Association is holding a series of free events across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales over the coming weeks to provide practical advice and support for UK fashion and textile businesses in the lead up to the exit from the European Union.

UKFT will outline the actions that companies should be taking to minimise disruption to trade, with a chance to ask questions on specific issues that affect their business.

The events will cover both exporting to the EU and importing from the EU. UKFT will provide an update on the latest developments regarding:

• Export Paperwork

• Samples (Bringing in or taking out)

• Export Tariffs

• Import Tariffs

• Outward Processing Relief (OPR)

• Common Transit Convention

• VAT (for importing or exporting)

• CITES (The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora)

• Transitional Simplified Procedures (TSP)

• Generalised System of Preferences (GSP)

• Labelling

• REACH regulations

• Standards

• People & Workers’ Rights

• Intellectual Property, Copyright and Trademarks

• Public Procurement

The UKFT seminars will be held in London, Huddersfield, Belfast, Edinburgh, Hawick, Northampton, Manchester, Cardiff, Leicester and Gateshead. There will be a webinar on 28 October 2019 and a dedicated Brexit helpline. Find out more at www.ukft.org

Adam Mansell, CEO of UKFT, said: “There has been a glut of information on how businesses can prepare for the UK leaving the European Union but these events and resources have been developed specifically for the UK fashion and textile industry encompassing the key things our businesses need to know. We want to reach as many firms as possible to ensure we minimise disruption for our industry and it is ready to exploit any new opportunities leaving the EU may bring.”

*The content of the event is aimed at businesses active in the UK fashion and textiles industry. If you do not meet this criteria, UKFT reserves the right to cancel your ticket subject to demand.
