London. Britain said on Tuesday it was postponing the introduction of some import restrictions for the second time since Brexit. The new epidemic is causing problems for companies Corona virus Tension in the global supply chain.
Britain withdrew from the EU single market at the end of last year. But unlike Brussels, which immediately introduced border controls, London later planned to introduce restrictions on imports of certain goods, such as food, so that companies would have enough time to adapt.
Britain initially postponed the introduction of these restrictions for six months on April 1, and has now postponed the deadline for full customs notices and restrictions to 1 January 2022.
Security and safety reports will be required from July 1 next year.
“We want companies to focus on recovering from an epidemic rather than dealing with new border requirements, so we have set a practical new timetable for introducing full border controls,” Brexit Minister David Frost said.
“Businesses will now have more time to prepare for these studies, which will be built on the grid throughout 2022,” he added.
Industry sources in the logistics and customs sectors also said that even government infrastructure was not yet ready to introduce full controls.
