Malta Enterprise has launched its new Brexit Impact Check website.
Malta Enterprise invited businesses and self-employed in Malta to explore the newly launched website, which serves as a repository of information for businesses affected by the new EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement.
Since the reaching of the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement on Christmas Eve, there has been confusion at some local businesses due to a perceived lack of details as to the requirements on said businesses.
The structure of the website provides information in a question and answer format, for ease of use.
The new website also links the users to other government entities such as Customs Department, Malta Competition & Consumer Affairs Authority (MCCAA), Environmental & Resources Authority (ERA), and the Commerce Department, the Medicines Authority, Transport Malta, the Plant Health Directorate and the Information and Data Protection Commissioner website.
The Brexit Impact Check is the result of collaborative exercise among various government entities in order to assist businesses that may be effected in one or more of the following matters: imports, exports, services, transport, supply, digital data and services, and IP rights.
Malta Enterprise said, “the Brexit Impact Check serves as a starting point and will be updated from time to time in order to reflect new details and more in-depth information generated from interactions with local and international authorities; as well as feedback and interactions with clients in relation to more specific cases.”
The website can be accessed here.
