Published on: 10 February 2021Following the UK’s departure from the European Union, many UK businesses will now be looking to utilise the 0% tariffs benefits set out in the Free Trade and Cooperation Agreement between our two trading bodies. To take advantage of this benefit businesses and industry are having to learn a new set of skills; Rules of Origin is one of those new skills.
Under the new agreement, products must be able to prove that they meet the requirements of Rules of Origin. This set of requirements can be a complex process to go through. Therefore to aid members, British Marine is working with The Institute of Export & International Trade to provide marine specific training in this area.
Before this is begun, British Marine must ensure that this is something the marine industry needs and will pursue. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your interest in utilising this new training course if it is produced.
Government grants to complete training are available (subject to availability) and can be applied for here.
