The Stakeholder Engagement Team at the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy have asked for your assistance via the following open letter:

“Dear Trade Association Forum Member

As you may be aware, the Government is currently running a White Paper consultation on the UK Internal Market which closes on 13th August.

The consultation is seeking views on proposals for maintaining the UK Internal Market in its current form following the end of the Transition Period, so avoiding barriers to internal trade across the four UK nations. The proposals are for a Market Access Guarantee that would enshrine:

Mutual recognition: ensuring that goods and services that are lawfully bought, sold and made use of in one part of the UK may be bought, sold, and made use of in any other part
Non-discrimination: whereby regulations in one part of the Internal Market cannot discriminate against goods and services from other parts of the UK

The Internal Market is likely to have implications for your member companies, and their supply chains. Please participate in this important consultation by sharing your views at GOV.UK.

If you would like more information or have questions please contact ukinternalmarket@beis.gov.uk

Thank you.

BEIS Internal Market Team”
