Brexit: How to cope with it

On January 21, 2021, Eva Monard, a partner in Jones Day's Government Regulation Practice resident in Brussels, spoke at a webinar on "Brexit: How to cope with it?"

Ms. Monard addressed situations in which trade in goods between the European Union and the UK can still give rise to import duties. In this respect, she discussed rules of origin and the possible imposition of trade defence measures, unilateral measures relating to subsidy control, and rebalancing measures in case of regulatory divergence.

Other speakers included Roel van 't Veld, EU Customs Policy Lead at National Office Dutch Customs - Brexit coordination, who provided an overview of the border formalities between UK and The Netherlands under the Trade Cooperation Agreement and the practical implications of Brexit for cross-border logistics. 

The webinar was organized by DUJAT (Dutch & Japanese Trade Federation) in close cooperation with JCC (Japanese Chamber of Commerce) and JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization).
