Thursday 23 rd September sees the Government publish the first in a series of technical
notices designed to prepare the UK for the possibility of a no-deal Brexit.
Up to 84 no-deal preparation notices have been drawn up – setting out the potential
developments of exiting the EU without a deadline deal on Thursday 23 rd Oct – and they will
all be released by the end of September.
The notices include advice for citizens, public services, public bodies, plus businesses and
cover a very broad range of issues ranging from financial services, company law and climate
change, to travelling abroad with pets.
They have been drawn up by the likes of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural
Affairs, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the Department for
Transport and the Treasury.
All the notices will be available on the gov.uk website in a centralised location that is easy
for people to access and use. One of their main aims is to set out the Government’s
approach to ensuring key European products are still available in the UK after March 2019.
Meanwhile, the EU has already released 68 technical notices of its own, so that’s over 150
advisory papers to review – which are going to need a lot of decoding.
