Chris Grayling, Secretary of State for Transport at the DfT published transport technical notices for a 'No deal' Brexit at the beginning of this week, Monday Sept 24th

The notices set out plans to be put into place in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a deal.

The Department for Transport (DfT) has published several documents. This information demonstrates the potential impact a 'No deal' scenario will have on areas of transport policy, including the haulage industry and those driving in and flying to and from Europe.



The DfT said

The government remains confident of a deep and special partnership with the EU following exit and a mutually advantageous deal with the EU continues to be the most likely outcome. Included in measures recommended by the government today are: hauliers may want to take steps now to prepare for future permitting and trailer registration requirements, and to ensure drivers have the right documentation; and the aviation industry should review potential implications for supply chains and staff with specialist qualifications. The government will set out additional practical measures for other transport sectors in due course. These notices are in addition to the ongoing active engagement we continue to have with stakeholders across transport to discuss impacts and opportunities from EU Exit. These discussions will continue.

Throughout the whole of the Brexit process, the government’s aim has been to ensure that all travel – whether business or personal – remains as friction-free as possible after we leave the EU. It is our intention to recognise EUstandards of security and safety and expect our European partners to do the same. It is clearly in our mutual interests to do so.

The technical notices made available on Monday 24th were:

Driving in the EU if there’s no Brexit deal

Vehicle insurance if there’s no Brexit deal

Commercial road haulage in the EU if there’s no Brexit deal

Reporting CO2 emissions for new cars and vans if there’s no Brexit deal
