Brexit and your business

There is unlikely to be any change to UK laws on food, product safety or consumer rights when the UK leaves the EU on 29 March 2019. However, food businesses that export to the EU will need meet EU importation requirements. Find out how Brexit affects food businesses.

The UK Government is trying to secure a transition period until December 2020 during which time all current laws will remain in force. After the transition there may be changes between UK and EU law that could affect your business, but these are not known yet.
