ACITA Midlands meeting Minutes 21st June 2017 at The Grange, Southam, Warks. BREXIT Update Questions were raised around the timeliness of the implementation of CDS and BREXIT. CDS is expected Q1 2019 which is an obvious clash with BREXIT timescales. There is talk that BREXIT could potentially bring 4-5 times more customs entries. CDS also includes extra dataset requirements which could also have a knock on effect to traders.

BREXIT to prove very challenging for international trade ACITA Members heard the European Perspective on BREXIT from Yves Melin and the UK Perspective from Aarti Shanker who also covered how current BREXIT negotiations are at a macro and political level so the detail will be some time. It follows that the two year timescale is very optimistic, hindering planning for many companies. Howard Levene and Jeremy White covered the more practical BREXIT issues.
