Exploring the Implications of Brexit for the Plastics Industry

Brexit will alter the trading landscape for all UK plastics manufacturers. To provide key updates and insights, the British Plastics Federation (BPF) has launched its second Brexit seminar.

This event will take place on Thursday 19 April at the BPF offices near Old Street in London.

Organisations confirmed to speak at the event include the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), the Institute of Export and European Plastics Converters (EuPC). During the morning session of this one-day event, delegates will be given an overview of the current situation with Brexit. The morning session will also include an examination of the impact that Brexit will have on REACH and the opportunity to hear a European point of view.

Further sessions at the event will examine what WTO rules would mean for plastics manufacturers, proof of origin post-Brexit as well as what the export market may look like.

Mike Boswell, chairman of the BPF Brexit Taskforce states:

There is still significant uncertainty over what Brexit will mean for our industry. This seminar will examine some of the opportunities and the threats, as well as what the future trading environment could look like under certain scenarios.”
