‘NO DEAL’ EU EXIT STATEMENT FOR WPM

Defra and the WPM industry have released a statement detailing new requirements that would apply to WPM, should the UK leave the EU without a deal. The statement can be found here.

This statement has been jointly drafted with the UK Government (Defra, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs). It should be read together with Defra’s policy guidance "Importing and exporting plants and plant products if the UK leaves the EU without a deal" to provide practical guidance to help our industry.

Further updates and guidance will be uploaded here as developments continue to unfold.

We are currently compiling a repository of answers to questions TIMCON members and UKWPMMP registered companies may have as a result of this statement. Please email any questions or request for clarification to info@timcon.org.
