UKFT Brexit events

UKFT Brexit Guidance webinar (member only)

6th November – 1pm – 2.30pm

UKFT is in close contact with the government as the negotiations with the EU on a Free Trade Agreement continue.

However, even if a deal is concluded before the end of the Transition Period, how goods are moved to and from the EU will be very different and companies should be prepared for major changes.

On 6th November at 1pm, UKFT will be joined by Denise Valin Alvarez, Director of Global Trade Compliance at Burberry, to outline what UK fashion and textile companies need to know in relation to costing your product, moving goods and trade documentation, other legal issues, labelling and more.

There will be a presentation from UKFT and Denise Valin Alvarez from Burberry, with the opportunity to ask questions.

UKFT members will be sent a link to register directly. For any questions or to find out more about becoming a UKFT member, contact
