BAMA advice on tariff free trade with EU

The British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association (BAMA) advised its members to check if their goods qualify for tariff free trade with the EU.

The UK signed a Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TDA) with the EU before the end of the transition period on 31 December, 2020.

A post on the BAMA website read: “One of the important changes is Rules of Origin. Rules of Origin concerns where a product was manufactured and determines the ‘economic nationality’ of a good for international trade.

“Businesses need to know about them because the Trade and Cooperation Agreement means they can trade with the EU without paying tariffs – but only if their product meets the relevant Rules of Origin.

“To export tariff-free into the EU traders must check their goods meet the Rules of Origin requirements set out in the Trade and Cooperation Agreement and have the right documentation.”

It advised members on how to check for details on how to claim preferential (zero) tariffs, and see the documentation you’ll need to complete.
