Import controls

Read about the governments plan to introduce import controls on EU goods from 1 January 2021.

Business can prepare for border controls by making sure they have an Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) number and looking into how they want to make declarations, such as using a customs agent.

The government will ensure the facilitation currently available to rest-of-world traders will also be open to those trading between Great Britain and the EU.

The government has already announced it will implement new border controls in 3 stages leading up to full implementation in July 2021. Details are set out in the Border Operating Model, published on 13 July 2020.
