Full customs controls from 1 January 2022
Don’t get caught out

If you’re a trader, a number of things are changing from 1 January 2022. Ports and other border locations will be required to control goods moving between Great Britain and the EU. This means that unless your goods have a valid declaration and have received customs clearance, they will not be able to be released into circulation, and in most cases will not be able to leave the port.
