BEIS announce Business Growth and Support Workshops
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has announced they will be holding a series of workshops in July, specifically for small to medium enterprises (SME’s) to share issues related to business growth and of course Brexit.
Officials from across government will be sharing information on those operational areas expected to change when the UK leaves the EU and the preparations that businesses need to make. It is expected that workshops will include information on importing, exporting, transport and employment.

Regulations and Standards
A new Ministerial statement has been made in relation to two new services provided by The National Archives to aid legal certainty when the UK leaves the EU and to ensure that members of the public are able to view all EU legislation relevant to the UK’s exit.
The European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 required The National Archives to make all EU legislation relevant to the UK’s exit available online and two new services have been produced to host this information. The first is a comprehensive archive of EU law which will be captured through to exit day, allowing members of the public to search for EU legislation, treaties, international agreements and case law.
The second strand of work is the addition of EU legislation to the current website – www.legislation.gov.uk, where all pieces of EU law have been uploaded to the website including a timeline of the changes so date.
The aims of the service are to make it simpler for interested parties to find out how EU legislation is being changed by the UK’s departure.
