Calling businesses in Staffordshire

12th November 2018 By Hannah Tankard in Small Business News

Currently, there is multi-agency working group reviewing each of the recently issued by the Government Technical Notices outlining the potential impact of a no-deal (or bad deal) BREXIT (which can be find here:: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/how-to-prepare-if-the-uk-leaves-the-eu-with-no-deal )  to try to assess the potential impact to Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent for the first 6 to 10 weeks after the UK leaves the EU on 29.3.19 .

For this reason, Staffordshire Civil Contingencies Unit want to approach as many businesses in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent as possible for the following purposes:

  1. Advise them very strongly to review each of these notices and consider what urgent preparation they need to do in good time for next March’s EU exit. Businesses particularly in the agri-food sector could be significantly impacted, and indeed any business, regardless of sector that export to, or import from the EU should carefully consider the details as they are potentially at risk.

  2. Please ask Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent businesses how the issues identified in the notices are likely to impact on them personally and locally. It’s important that our working group gets as full an understanding as possible as the next stage of our work will be to prepare local contingency plans to try to mitigate the adverse effects.

If you are a business in the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent area and want to participate, please contact and send your responses to  ccu@staffordshirefire.gov.uk as soon as possible.
