UK Internal Market White Paper

UK Internal Market White Paper

The white paper sets out policy options to protect the flow of goods and services across the UK after the end of transition period.

To secure this, the government proposes to enshrine in law 2 principles:

– the principle of mutual recognition

– the principle of non-discrimination

Mutual recognition means that the rules governing the production and sale of goods and services in one part of the UK are recognised in the other parts of the UK, and should present no barrier to the flow of goods and services between different regulatory systems.

Non-discrimination means that it is not possible for one regulatory regime to introduce rules that discriminate specifically against goods and services from another.

Commenting on the government’s launch of the UK Internal Market White Paper and associated consultation, BCC Director General Adam Marshall said:

“Businesses in all four nations of the UK will want to examine the detail of these proposals.

“No business should have to face additional costs when trading between the four nations of the UK, now or into the future. The UK government and the devolved administrations must work together to create a clear framework that gives businesses in every nation of the UK the same opportunities to trade and compete following the end of the transition period.

“A fragmented system would create additional costs, bureaucracy and supply chain challenges that could disrupt operations for firms across the UK.

“As these proposals progress, business communities will want practical considerations –  not politics – at the heart of the debate.”

“No business should have to face additional costs when trading between the four nations of the UK, now or into the future."
