Getting Ireland Brexit Ready
Skillnet Ireland, in conjunction with the Government’s ‘Getting Ireland Brexit Ready’ campaign, is launching Clear Customs, a free online training programme to support Irish businesses deal with increased customs requirements as a result of Brexit.
By the end of 2020, businesses, trading either with or through Great Britain, will be subject to a range of new customs formalities and other regulatory requirements. Designed in collaboration with key industry bodies in the trade and logistics sector, Clear Customs is an initiative to support affected Irish companies develop the capacity to deal with the additional customs requirements that will be needed from January 1st, 2021. The programme which is developed in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), will be delivered by CILT Skillnet and is accredited by Carlow Institute of Technology.
Features include an ‘on-the-go’ mobile app upon registration that will help customs agents, intermediaries and affected Irish businesses develop the capacity to deal with additional customs requirements. All businesses that trade with or through Great Britain need to act now to be prepared.
