Following the UK’s separation from the EU in January 2021, the UK entered a new trading era with Europe and the rest of the world.   

All consignments despatched from the UK are exports and need to go through customs clearance. There are ongoing amendments  to the rules and regulations that must be followed, along with modifications to systems that are used.  This impacts on business operations and processes.  Are your staff fully up-to-date with industry developments and adequately trained in the mechanics of the export process?

Whether preparing the right documentation, understanding the significance of rules of origin or the complexities of customs procedures, the Exporter has legal obligations.

This course covers the key aspects of the export process from a very practical perspective.  It is suitable for companies exporting products to overseas markets (it is not relevant for service companies).  Everyone within an organisation is involved in the export process in some way, however those staff who have a greater responsibility for ensuring that goods are suitable for export markets, shipped correctly and maintaining appropriate records will benefit the most from participation.
