The European Commission It issued a document concerning the consequences of Brexit over Europe trade of products from the United Kingdom.
The document covers all the products introduced in the European Community, excluding food and agricultural, from the date of 30 March 2019, date that will be the release of the UK from the European Community (unless extended).
For those interested we enclose the entire document:
Withdrawal of the United Kingdom and EU rules in the field of industrial products.
The committee emphasized that, starting from the release date, manufacturers and importers established in the UK will no longer be considered operators established in the European Community.
The result is that a business established in any other member country, that before the Brexit was considered a distributor, It will automatically become an importer and will be subject to the Law on products from third countries.
In practical terms, he will have to fulfill the obligations of importers which are different from those distributors.
There is more. European regulations concerning products will no longer recognize authorized representatives established in the United Kingdom. So the non-EU companies that today employ an authorized representative (or agent) for placing their products in the European market, will relocate this function to another of EU countries.
Also according to the document, Notified Bodies UK will not be so for the European law and will not be allowed to comment on the CE certification of products the conditions laid down in Union harmonization legislation.
What will make people working in the field?
They must be assured that any appraisal certificate (EU type examination) comes from a notified entity one of the Community's member countries.
The manufacturer will still have to keep updated EC declaration of conformity of its products and ensure that the responsible for placing on the market lies in the European Community.
