As the deadline for Brexit approaches, uncertainty grows around exactly what kind of deal the UK will negotiate with the EU. At the moment, the UK’s official position is still that a no-deal Brexit remains unlikely. Despite this, the Government has committed to publishing 84 assessments on the consequences of a no-deal covering a wide range of subjects.
As with all industries, the Sporting Goods and Play sectors need to be as prepared as possible for the effects of a no-deal. The Government issued its first tranche of papers in August and continue to produce more.
To help our members, we have compiled a list of technical papers issued to date that are likely to affect our industries if there is a no-deal Brexit:
Whatever the outcome of Brexit negotiations there will be changes to navigate particularly with regards to supply chains, so we will continue to provide you with information as negotiations progress and signpost you to relevant government papers.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact our Director of General Affairs, Jane Montgomery, on 02476 414999 or email [email protected]
It’s great to be part of an organisation that campaigns for investment in children’s play facilities and which raises the standards of the entire industry.
Having the support of the FSPA behind us is tremendously beneficial and greatly enhances the offering to our membership.
I have been a member of SPE for many years now and every member shows a 100% commitment to promote participation in sport and play in the UK.
It’s sometimes difficult to get heard when you stand on your own. But when you're part of a respected body like the FSPA, people listen and things start to happen.
The opportunity to meet with like-minded people across our sector to discuss some of the challenges is always invaluable.
Working together as a group of companies creates a stronger voice for the play industry, which benefits both suppliers and customers.
