EU Exit – fisheries guidance events

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, in partnership with Seafish and the Marine Management Organisation, is hosting a series of events across England to help seafood traders, processors and businesses understand the changes that lie ahead and what they can do to prepare for EU Exit on the 31st October 2019.

The events will contain presentations, face to face discussions and practical demonstrations on a range of topics, including:

  • Customs procedures
  • Food labelling requirements
  • Export Health Certificates
  • Catch Certificates
  • EU workers

Attendees will come away with a clear understanding of the actions they need to take to be ready for Brexit, with an opportunity to discuss these with Defra, Seafish and MMO staff.

The events are open to any individuals or businesses involved in processing and trading fish and seafood with the EU. Registration is on a first come first serve basis and attendees will be notified of venue locations closer to the time. For more information and to register for the events, please click here.
