CHANGES to import rules in April have sparked the launch of Brexit advice webinars.

The Department for Environmental and Rural Affairs is running a series of online events aimed at EU traders bringing products of animal origin into the UK from Europe.

Despite Brexit having now taken place, a grace period is currently in place on checks for some imports from EU traders – but this will end on April 1.

Dairy, meat, fishery products and compost products will all be affected.

The first one-hour webinar, which has a focus on dairy imports, took place today, but will be recorded and made available online.

Subsequent webinars will focus on meat imports on February 25, fish and fishery products on March 4, and composite product imports on March 11.
