British Chambers responds to draft Border Target Operating Model

Responding to the publication of draft proposals from Government for new border controls, William Bain, Head of Trade Policy at the British Chambers of Commerce, said:

“The British Chambers of Commerce is a big believer in the shift to a digital trade system. If it is done properly then smaller firms will see benefits when it comes to importing goods into Great Britain.

“Providing certainty for business is crucial and the focus must now be on delivering to the timescales set out. This will need a concerted effort to get the physical and digital infrastructure in place.

“It is then vital that companies, here and across the world, involved in sourcing and supply chains, are properly prepared for these changes and the introduction of new trusted trader arrangements.

“We look forward to engaging with our members and businesses across the UK on the details during the six-week consultation period ahead and pre-implementation period thereafter, as well as Government, to ensure the switchover runs as smoothly as possible.”
