Brexit News - Border Operating Model (BOM)

We are pleased to inform you that the UK Government published yesterday (20 July 2021) the next iteration of the UK Border Operation Model (BOM). This is framed as “A guide to how the border with the European Union will work after the transition period.”

This revised version has been update to include:

  • The updated timetable for introducing import border controls processes, understanding that the disruption caused by COVID has lasted longer and has been deeper than we anticipated;
  • Confirmation that the final stage of controls for live animals, aquatic animals and equines will continue to be checked at the point of destination until appropriate Border Control Posts are operational;
  • Confirmation that intrastat declarations for goods imported into Great Britain from the EU will not be required from 1 January 2022
  • Removal of the Kent Access Permit information as they no longer exist;
  • Added detail to the infrastructure section;
  • Increased guidance on the phasing out of EU ID cards.

As always, I hope the above is informative and therefore of interest.
