In addition, the UK and Canada are finalising arrangements to maintain shared recognition rules on compliance of good manufacturing practices (GMP) for pharmaceutical products, and to provide continuity in regard to the mutual acceptance of the results of conformity assessment for radio and telecommunications terminal equipment and Electromagnetic compatibility. The final arrangements will be published here.
We will work with UK businesses to provide clear guidance on the arrangements for 1 January and on any temporary changes that may have an impact on them between 1 January and the TCA coming into force in early 2021.
Notes to Editors
Total trade between the UK and Canada was worth £19.9 billion in the four quarters to end of Q1 2020, of which £11.5 billion was trade in goods.
These temporary measures will be maintained until the UK-Canada Trade Continuity Agreement comes into force or is provisionally applied.
Detailed business guidance will be uploaded on GOV.UK shortly. This will be found here.
