star this property answer text <p>Significant progress has been made on the Withdrawal Agreement, including reaching agreement at the March European Council on the legal text relating to the terms of an implementation period. This will start on 30 March 2019 and last until 31 December 2020. During the implementation period, the UK will no longer be a Member State of the European Union, but market access will continue on current terms. Common rules will remain in place until the end of the period meaning businesses will be able to trade on the same terms as now up until the end of 2020.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The Government recognises the importance to the country’s economy for trade fluidity through the UK’s key ports. We want to ensure that traders, intermediaries and freight forwarders can continue to move goods through ports as quickly and seamlessly as they do now. We have set up a Border Delivery Group to bring together individual departmental plans, forming an overall picture and plan of what we need to do at borders.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>On 7 June, following discussions with the EU, the UK published ’Framework for the UK-EU Partnership - Transport’, setting out UK proposals for the future UK-EU relationship. This was reiterated in the recently published White Paper on the Future Relationship Between the UK and the EU, which made clear that the UK wants to explore options for a reciprocal access deal for road hauliers and passenger transport operators. There is a strong mutual interest in reaching an ambitious agreement, which maximises benefits for all our citizens and businesses.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Act 2018 received Royal Assent on 19 July and provides for powers to introduce a permitting system in the event that this were needed. This is part of wider government preparations to ensure the UK can deliver a smooth and orderly Brexit.</p> more like this

The FCA is a business-friendly model that seeks to facilitate the greatest possible trade between the UK and its trading partners, whether in Europe or rest of world, while allowing the UK to set its own tariffs. The Government will continue to work with the FTA and other key stakeholders to resolve the remaining areas of detail.</p><p>The Government is committed to continuing to engage with stakeholders to ensure that their views and concerns are fully understood and taken into account and to ensure that our planning is effective and practical.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Each Free Trade Agreement negotiation entails a different balance of commitments, with less generous commitments in one area requiring more generous provisions elsewhere.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>Under the proposal set out in our White Paper, the UK could make commitments to third country trading partners in a number of areas, while ensuring continued frictionless UK-EU trade: for example, on rules that set marketing and labelling requirements for agri-food products.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The UK could also agree mutual recognition of conformity assessments with third-countries, allowing the UK to recognise that a third country’s testing bodies can properly assess products against UK regulatory standards and vice versa. This is at the ambitious end of existing free trade agreements. We will also be an independent WTO member and able to set our own goods tariffs. Beyond goods, we will be able to negotiate in areas of real importance to our economy, such as services and digital.</p>
