To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what plans he has for regulations concerning the EU TRACES data recording and sharing system to form part of the common rule book envisaged in the White Paper, The future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union, published in July 2018, Cm 9593.
The future relationship between the UK and EU is subject to negotiation. This includes the scope of the Common Rulebook and UK access to EU systems and databases as part of the Future Economic Partnership. The UK’s proposal for a Common Rulebook on agri-food encompasses rules on goods that must be checked at the border. This would remove the need to undertake additional regulatory checks at the border. In order to support future trade, the UK will need a control system for the management of agri-food imports and exports.
