When the UK was a member of the EU all certifications and qualifications issued in the UK were recognised by the other EU member states. Since the EU exit this is no longer the case, and there is no mutual recognition in the UK of EU certificates and qualifications and vice versa. This means those manufacturing equipment and selling a package that includes maintenance, and companies selling consultancy or professional services.
What You Will Learn/Takeaway
- How to sell services/products to the EU that require staff to have professional qualifications/certifications
- How to buy in services from the EU that required consultants/providers to have professional qualifications/certifications
- What local/ EU regulations you need to be aware of
- Where you need to check for information on permits/visas and certification
- Identify where there may be market opportunities as a result of the EU Exit
- What to be aware of as discussions continue on passporting for professional services – especially financial services and how to prepare
Who should attend:
You should attend this webinar if you are a business that has been impacted by the Eu Exit, particularly if you sell maintenance and service contracts, professional or financial services or rely on buying those services in from the EU. If you have service/maintenance contracts with EU companies on machinery and equipment, or EU legal or financial representatives.
