 The UK left the EU under the Withdrawal Agreement on 31 January 2020, and will enter into a transition period until the end of 2020.

During this time, businesses will be able to trade with the EU on the same terms as they do now. There are no immediate changes that will come into effect from 31 January that you need to prepare for. Organics will continue to follow EU rules until the transition period ends, including import/export rules and labelling requirements.

Defra have compiled a FAQ sheet that contains information on labelling, importing and exporting during the transition period, click here to download.
