Government Outlines UK Swiss Trade Deal

Feb 22, 2019 | News

The Department of International Trade have published details of the trade agreement between the UK and Switzerland, which will become applicable should there be a no deal Brexit.

The “continuity agreement” – based on the EU’s existing free trade deal with Switzerland – was agreed in December but finalised last week.

The UK-Switzerland agreement covers:

  • Trade in goods – including provisions on rules of origin, preferential tariffs and quotas, and non-tariff measures
  • Geographical indications
  • Government procurement

In the event of a hard Brexit, the UK needs to replicate around 40 EU trade agreements with more than 70 countries.

You can read more details regarding the deal on the governments website here.
