The Facilitated Customs Arrangement (FCA) would remove the need for customs processes between the UK and the EU. The UK also proposes a range of unilateral and bilateral facilitations to reduce frictions for UK trade with the rest of the world. The details of the arrangement will be subject to negotiation with the EU.
