Find out the nine areas where changes are expected in 'no deal' Brexit scenario.

In March 2019, Black Country Chamber of Commerce held the second in a four-part series of International Trade and Brexit Seminars. With guest-speakers from BEIS and the Home Office, the session focused on EU-exit readiness and how businesses should be preparing for a ‘no-deal’ exit.

The Home Office focused on the intricacies around the Settlement Scheme and what employers need to know to support their employees through this process. More information on the Settlement Scheme is available via the links below and through the Brexit Hub on our website.

BEIS broke down nine key areas where changes are expected in the event of a ‘no-deal’ EU-exit. Familiar points around import/export, regulations, funding opportunities and the employment of EU-citizens are all included, but policy areas like intellectual property, using personal data and public procurement are all shown as being susceptible to a disorderly EU-exit.

The nine areas are listed in the table below. BEIS confirmed that the government is committed to avoiding a ‘no-deal’ scenario, but that these measures should be taken by business to prepare for the worst-case scenario.

The government have supporting documents and information available on the site. More specifically, there are a host of ‘no-deal’ technical notices for a range of sectors. These can be found here –

The Black Country Chamber also has documents to support business through the Brexit process. Visit our Brexit Hub, here and have a look at our Brexit Business Checklist, Brexit Risk Register and a host of other useful document

Don’t forget, we are the Black Country Europe Direct Information Centre. Through this project, directly funded by the EU-Commission, we have great links directly through to the Commission and to legal entities who can help support citizens through the Settlement Scheme and what Brexit means for them.
