Article image Brexit negotiators in call ahead of European Union summit

"Companies will also be able to benefit from the preserved block exemptions within the United Kingdom when they enter into new agreements that meet the relevant criteria after European Union exit", it said.

However, the government has also detailed the issues for auto manufacturers, whose vehicles must meet type approval criteria before going on sale in any given market.

Come March 29, 2019, though, that could all change.

New blue passports will not be available to travellers until at least six months after Brexit, it was revealed yesterday.

But a technical paper released by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) went further, warning the United Kingdom would "no longer play any part in the development of Galileo" or the related European Geostationary Navigation Overlay (EGNO) system.

The latest batch of papers setting out government preparations and advice in case Brexit talks fail also reveal additional red tape for businesses trading with Europe and would even remove the United Kingdom from the early warning system for space debris falling out of orbit.

A statement from the government said this approval would be "time-limited", but that it would "ensure that products can continue to be sold and registered in the United Kingdom".

It also confirmed the likelihood of parallel competition and merger investigations in a "no deal" Brexit scenario.

The papers are an attempt to show that Britain is seriously planning for a no-deal Brexit in order to strengthen its negotiating hand with Brussels, although Theresa May has repeatedly said that she would prefer to strike a withdrawal deal with the European Union by November that would than have to be ratified by parliament.

A document released by the Department for Transport (DfT) states that your driving licence could "no longer be valid by itself when driving in the EU" and that an International Driving Permit (IDP) might be required at all times.

The Road Haulage Association has warned it will take "an average of about 45 minutes to process one truck on both sides of the channel" if customs checks are put in place.

For the public, Thursday's notices covered more mundane issues; the government said British drivers might need to obtain an worldwide driving permit to drive in the EU.
