The Border Operating Model
A guide to how the border with the European Union will work after the transition period.
Doing business with Europe has changed. The UK has left the Single Market and Customs Union and new rules now apply.
Traders and hauliers must take the steps outlined in the Border Operating Model which has been updated following the UK-EU trade and cooperation agreement.
Case studies have been created to represent end-to-end scenarios that will happen between GB and EU, importing and exporting goods from January 2021. These show not just the journeys for standard goods, but also for journeys with additional requirements such as those using the Common Transit Convention or transporting controlled goods. This should still be used in conjunction with the Border Operating Model which will contain further details, particularly for controlled goods.
