As you are probably aware, the UK and the European Union have now agreed an extension to the Brexit deadline until 31 January 2020. This means that the UK will not be leaving the EU on Thursday 31st October 2019.

 

It is, however, possible that the UK could leave the EU before 31 January if the UK parliament agrees the Withdrawal Bill, and so leave with an agreed deal in place.

 

During the extension period up to 31 January, you should continue to move equines as you do now to the EU, using all the current processes and systems in place. There will be no additional checks taking place during this time either in the UK or the EU.

 

However, it is important that you continue to be aware of what it is that you need to do to get ready for all potential Brexit scenarios during this period.

 

All of the relevant guidance will remain on GOV.UK and we will continue to engage with you at regular intervals over the next couple of months to ensure you can stay up to date with what you need to know and actions that you will need to take.

 

We thank you for your ongoing engagement and we will keep you updated
