Cleveland Cable Company UK have been busy making plans for Brexit for over 3 years.
As the UK prepares to leave the European Union following the UK referendum in June 2016, we are working with suppliers and customers to ensure a seamless service. In addition to using manufacturers from across the EU, Cleveland Cable Imports and exports goods every day across some of the most complex customs borders around the world including Russia, Kazakhstan, India, and Azerbaijan to name a small number of our destinations. We are therefore confident in our ability to meet the demands of this uncertain but surmountable challenge.
In line with our ISO 9001:2015 accreditation, we have been carrying our continued assessment of the effects of Brexit since the UK referendum result was announced in 2016. We have carried out on site and desktop audits with our major suppliers to ensure that whatever the form of the final Brexit we are unaffected as far as is possible.
This is an ongoing process of Audit, Assessment, Review and Action, and will carry on throughout the Brexit negotiations and beyond. Cleveland Cable Company has undertaken management risk assessments, and will continue to do so up to and beyond the end of January 2020 and throughout the transition period. We have identified areas in which we may be affected and have either mitigated those effects or have contingency plans in place to minimise the effect of the UK leaving the EU with or without a trading deal.
