ADS launches members' Brexit Hub

Posted 1 November 2018 · Add Comment

Today ADS has launched a new Brexit Hub on its website to give members a single authoritative source of information on the potential impact of Brexit on the Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space sectors, and on how to prepare.

With the UK set to leave the European Union (EU) on 29 March 2019, it is important that businesses across ADS’ industries make sure they are as prepared as possible for the potential outcomes.

The ADS Brexit Hub covers three key areas:

•    How Brexit will affect industry – including regulatory implications, impact on customs and the UK / EU border, and the future of UK involvement in EU R&D programmes.
•    Preparing for Brexit – examining five areas where companies can ask questions to develop their own Brexit plan.
•    What happens next – covering updates, analysis and insights on progress in negotiations between the UK and EU, and upcoming milestones.

Together with the Brexit Hub, ADS has also launched a Brexit Readiness Questionnaire to help businesses identify the areas where they need to make plans.

ADS Chief Economist and Director of Policy Jeegar Kakkad said: “As the date of the UK’s departure from the EU comes closer, businesses in our four industries are working hard to make sure they are as prepared as possible for Brexit.

“While the detail of the final deal remains unclear as negotiations continue, companies of all sizes can ask simple questions now to step up their preparations.

“The new ADS Brexit Hub aims to give our more than 1000 member companies the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about how to address the challenges posed by Brexit.”
