EURIS covers sectors responsible for over 25% of total UK goods imports and exports

Industrial product supply association EURIS has announced the creation of a European Network to help deliver the best outcome from Brexit.

The network will work as an advisory body for governments, manufacturers and the media and offer solutions to market challenges presented by Brexit.

EURIS chair Howard Porter identified four key areas of focus: rules of origin, how the UK can play a role in European notified bodies, standards and regulation and customs policy and arrangements.

The announcement came after EURIS held its first summit on Brexit which saw industry associations, including the Renewable Energy Association, come together to discuss and agree on a joint UK-EU industry working plan.

Renewable Energy Association policy analyst Mark Sommerfeld said it was imperative that industry engages with each other to get the best result.

He said: “We are now realising how naïve we have been in understanding our supply chains. There is a huge amount of very fundamental things we haven’t had to think about for 40 years.

“The key things is making sure we have got a clear message to deliver to government when the Brexit negotiations begin.”

EURIS covers sectors responsible for over 25% of total UK goods imports and exports.
