Webinar: Rules of Origin in the UK-EU trade deal

26th January 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement secured tariff-free trade for businesses trading between the UK and EU following the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020.

However, to qualify for this tariff and quota-free trade, firms need to comply with Rules of Origin specified by the deal.

This one-hour webinar from the Institute of Export & International Trade will give an overview of these new rules, covering

  • What is origin and why is it important in international trade
  • What are the rules of origin in the UK: EU trade deal
  • Key principles around bilateral cumulation, when they do and don’t apply
  • Proving origin: supplier declarations and importer’s knowledge
  • Use of customs and trade procedures to support effective trade and zero tariffs
  • Commercial implications for businesses, challenges and opportunities

The webinar will include a short Q&A and you can ask questions in advance when registering. However, please note that we are expecting to receive a significant amount of queries and will not be able to get to all of them during the allotted time.

It will also be recorded so that you can watch it at a later date if you cannot make the live session.
