The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy wants to signpost aerospace companies to websites to help them prepare for Brexit:
- The businesses readiness toolkit found here. This is part of the Government’s no deal contingency planning and consists of a series of questions that businesses can answer about their activities, that will lead them to a curated set of EU exit information, tailored to the answers they have given. As new content will be regularly added to the tool, businesses are encouraged to sign up for regular email updates.
- Aerospace sector FAQ page found here. This is part of the Governments no deal contingency planning, and contains key information around importing and exporting, regulation and standards and employees, as well as signposting businesses other important sites.
- CAA microsite found here. The CAA has developed this microsite to be a central source of information for the aviation and aerospace industries about the actions they would need to take to be prepared for a no deal withdrawal from the EU and no continued mutual recognition. It is the most important site for information about air worthiness certification post Brexit.
- For companies who receive personal data from the EU: Please find the Information Commissioners Office website here. This is the main source of information for data protection issues post Brexit. Please find a further link from the ICO website here, which provides further detail about the use of standard contractual clauses for data transfers.
- Please click here to download a leaflet detailing the key steps businesses who receive personal data from the EU can take to prepare for EU Exit.
- The new EU Exit leaflet for SMEs can be found here. It provides a simple checklist of things to think about alongside some BAU information to help businesses continue to grow as we leave the EU.
- HMRC recently ran a live webinar to help UK businesses trading with the EU to keep imports and exports up to speed in case of a no deal EU Exit. This webinar talks about five key areas UK businesses need to know: from how to register for an Economic Operator and Identification (EORI) number and Transitional Simplified Procedures (TSP), to preparing to make customs declarations, what Entry Summary Declarations (also known as safety and security declarations) are, and paying the correct import and export duty and VAT.
