U.K. border controls on EU goods evoke supply chain disruption concerns


This year will see full border controls imposed on goods entering the United Kingdom from the European Union for the first time since the former’s withdrawal from the latter.

The changes will affect importers and their EU suppliers, and both are advised to prepare for increased checks, possible delays, and new charges.

The transition will be phased; the food and agriproducts sector will be the first to see significant changes. Health and/or phytosanitary certificates have been required for all food and agriproducts from EU countries since the end of January.
