As proposals for new UK border checks have now been announced, cargo-partners are reminding importers to get ready and be prepared. 

New import checks for all goods coming into the UK have been expected since the Brexit trade deal. Now the UK Government has provided a draft Border Target Operating Model, setting out a new approach to importing into the UK that is expected to be progressively introduced from the end of October 2023.

The  Border  Target  Operating  Model proposes a  new approach to security controls  (applying to all imports),  and  Sanitary and  Phytosanitary controls  (applying to imports of live animals,  germinal products,  animal products,  plants and plant products)  at the border.  It sets out how controls will be delivered through simplification, digitization and the UK’s new Single Trade Window.

Safety and Security (S&S) declarations for EU imports will come into force. The dataset for imports from the RoW trade will also be reduced. The UK Single Trade Window will be switched on removing duplication of different pre-arrival datasets and streamline border processes by allowing data sharing.
