What will happen in 2022 about Brexit?


Despite the Trade and Cooperation Agreement between the EU and the UK, all movements of goods are still subject to customs procedures.

In order to simplify customs clearance processes, the UK had introduced a ‘phased approach’ for imports into the UK which ends on 31th December 2021.
Based on this transitional regulation, UK importers still had the opportunity to introduce unchecked goods through the so-called CFSP (Customs Freight Simplified Procedure), which offset the need for a full border declaration.


But what will Brexit look like in 2022?
