The Brexit transition period having ended on the 31st December 2020 marked the anticipation of the UK’s full departure from the EU becoming a reality. In response to this, to support the implications that this will have for our member companies, the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in the UK is organising a series of technical webinars covering what this means for different sectors and the key considerations for doing business with the UK post-Brexit. These will all be held in collaboration with different departments of the British Government.
The third of these will be on the topic of Transporting goods to the UK by road for Spanish companies and for this session we shall be joined by senior guest speakers from the Department for Transport. This Government department is responsible for the English transport network and a limited number of transport matters in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland that have not been devolved.
The guest speakers will be addressing the following topics:
– Market access rights for hauliers & passenger transport operators under the EU-UK Trade & Cooperation Agreement
– The Check an HGV service/applying for a Kent Access Permit (KAP)
– Licencing requirements for entering the UK
The discussion will be followed by a Q&A with the keynote speakers. We therefore invite delegates to join the webinar with pre-prepared questions about how the new regulations for migration between the UK and Spain will affect your business.
Date: Thursday 25th March, 14:00 – 15:00 GMT / 15:00 – 16:00 CET
