The Border Target Operating Model

Breaking News: The British customs authority has recently published a document outlining a new deployment plan for sanitary controls, the Border Target Operating Model.

The Border Target Operating Model was recently published by the British customs authority. Highly anticipated, it provides some relief to certain French operators exporting products potentially subject to sanitary controls to the United Kingdom. Indeed, the document outlines a new timeline for the implementation of certain sanitary controls and obligations related to safety and security declarations.

Below are the new deadlines, which can be found on page 77 of the document ("Summary timeline for Implementation of the Border Target Operating Model"), and the full document is available here:

Key dates to remember for the Border Target Operating Model:
