Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

At last the first of the British Govt Public Information films

Here's the first of the 1960's era public information films being recycled ( due to the Hard Brexit short
notice ) by the UK to give the British transport industry and it's drivers a foretaste of the red tape and
customs procedures they are likely to encounter after the 29th March; when driving to and from
the continent.

In fact what about the UK and the EU trading under TIR rules after Brexit ??

Surprised TIR hasn't been mentioned at all during the run up to Brexit, as it's still there and in force
in many countries although since the formation of the EU:
The TIR procedure is mostly used in Eastern European countries that are not in the EU, namely Russia,
Ukraine & Turkey, and parts of the Near East. Since the formation of the EU single market, the TIR
procedure has become unnecessary for intra-EU goods transport.


British Public Information film about Continental driving under TIR rules
I guess Ireland would use this for trans-shipments. However for the UK it is largely irrelevant as - excepting stuff transiting the EU to non-EU countries - the EU border is the relevant one regardless of which EU country the shipment might be going to. So for all EU exports the border will always be Dover/Calais or whatever as there is no further relevant international transit thereafter.
