Friday 22nd November 2019

The EU and Singapore have enacted a Free Trade Agreement that went into force on the 21st November 2019.

Details can be found via the GOV.UK website and this link EU Singapore

Like many such agreements, there will be an annual fall in duty rates on their way to a zero ultimate rate for many products.

Also, the REX process will deal with the "certification" of imported goods as holding originating status.

This is a Rules Based system - Annex A of the agreement details the specific rules of origin that apply to products covered by the agreement.

It is worth considering what this agreement looks like in the context of a potential UK/EU agreement post BREXIT!
