Brexit Readiness Briefings at the Advanced Engineering Show

  • Learn how Brexit will affect your business – and have BEIS officials answer your technical questions
  • Visit stand J82e at the Advanced Engineering Show on 30 and 31 October at the NEC
  • Collect your free Brexit guide

On 30 and 31 October at the Advanced Engineering Show, ALFED is hosting the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) for Brexit Readiness Briefings. All are welcome – not just ALFED members or companies in the aluminium industry.

BEIS officials will be on our stand in the Aluminium Pavilion to answer Brexit questions relevant to your business. ALFED will also be hosting 2 Brexit speaker seminars each day as part of the show’s main programme, all of which will have Q&A sessions.

It’s free to attend the Brexit Readiness Briefings

You’ll have a unique opportunity to discuss company-specific questions on issues such as:

  • Importing and exporting – using your EORI number, managing customs declarations, understanding applicable tariffs, and dealing with EU customers to determine where tariff liabilities lie
  • Regulation and compliance – including REACH registration validity, quality testing and marking
  • Employment – managing your EU workforce and understanding the settlement scheme
  • Personal data – ensuring you have the right contractual cover for transferring personal data to and from the EU
  • Access to funding – including how Brexit affects grants and financing
  • Intellectual property – protecting your IP in EU markets after Brexit

In addition to the free consultations with BEIS officials, you’ll get a practical Brexit Guide with essential contact details, helping you cut through the reams of information available online and through the media.
