Our No Deal Brexit planning comprises two parts:
EORI and Customs Duty Deferment:
We have applied for and been granted an EORI number and Customs Duty Deferment Approval Number. This means that any freight forwarder can preclear our goods through UK customs without having to obtain prior authorization or payment.
All our copper is imported from Europe, either directly or indirectly.
To mitigate transport disruption in the event of a No Deal Brexit we will be increasing our stock of copper products and we are asking all of our customers to place forward orders for April, May and June 2019 before the end of January to ensure that we are holding appropriate stocks.
