Impact of Brexit on parallel trade of plant protection products

Date: 8 March 2019

On 6 March 2019, the German Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) published a note stating that, in the event of a no-deal Brexit, Germany would not recognise parallel trade permits issued for plant protection products, sourced in the UK, unless permits have been prolonged. The German position corresponds to the official statement of the European Commission. Click here to read the official BVL's note in German.
