Website designed to help business owners understand impact of EU-UK trade deal
Local business owners who trade with the UK can now use a newly-launched website to see how an EU-UK Brexit trade deal affects them.
The Brexit Impact Check website, launched by Malta Enterprise, aims to serve as a repository of information for businesses seeking to understand the impact of the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement on their business.
Signed on December 30, 2020, the agreement governs the relationship between the EU and the UK after Brexit was concluded and has been applied provisionally since January 1. It must be ratified by the EU before it can be finalised.
The newly-launched website helps business owners understand which parts of the agreement apply to their trade, using a simple question-and-answer format. It also links he users to other government entities such as the Customs department, Malta Competition & Consumer Affairs Authority, Environmental & Resources Authority, Commerce department, Medicines Authority, Transport Malta, the Plant Health Directorate and the Information and Data Protection Commissioner website.
It provides information about imports, exports, services, transport, supply, digital data and services and intellectual property rights which may have been impacted by the EU-UK trade deal.
In a statement announcing the website launch, Malta Enterprise said that the website would be updated periodically to provide more in-depth information and reflect feedback provided by users.
Businesses can submit their questions and suggestions on firstname.lastname@example.org.
