Discuss the impact of Brexit on the UK - EU trade
EU has publiched a special document with regard to its preparation for no-deal Brexit at https://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/info/fil...-final.pdf
A brief extract with regard to some aspects that may impact on exporting to and importing from UK:
Customs and the exports of goods
If the Withdrawal Agreement is not ratified, all relevant EU legislation on imported goods and exported goods will apply as of the withdrawal date. This includes the levying of duties and taxes and the respect of the formalities and controls required by the current legal framework, in order to ensure a level playing field.

This will allow operators from the United Kingdom temporarily to carry goods into the Union, provided the United Kingdom confers equivalent rights to Union road haulage operators and subject to conditions ensuring fair competition

This is subject to the United Kingdom conferring equivalent rights to air carriers from the Union, as well as to the United Kingdom ensuring conditions of fair competition.
