As 29th March draws closer, we have been busy reviewing our situation, the potential risks and the impact of change on the price of materials, customers and our supply chain should we find ourselves at the sharp end of a ‘no deal’ Brexit.

Here at BEC we intend to mitigate these risks as best we can, investigating the likely impact with key material suppliers.  With this in mind we have already developed a Process Decision Programme chart to help us assess and plan effectively, a draft of which we’re happy to share with our customers.

We will continue to update our customers where required, prioritizing products that require export outside the UK.

Director Geoff Elvy explains “we are aware of our obligations and take these risks very seriously which is why we will be holding regular updates, liaising with suppliers, keeping customers and stakeholders informed. Whilst we appreciate that one solution may not fit our entire customer base, we’re keen to talk with key customers to get the right solution for them.”

If there is ‘no deal’ and we default to the WTO customs tariff rules, BEC will continue to review all impacts on the business, keeping very close tabs on their likely impact on supply and constructing robust countermeasures where possible.

As 29th March gets closer and negotiations continue, we want to assure our customers that we will continue to review the situation regularly, so they can be assured of the continued great service they have come to expect from BEC.
