Brexit Statement - Ascom UK

This is Ascom UK's Brexit statement and with key dates for orders

December 2, 2020

The decision made by the United Kingdom (UK) to leave the European Union (EU), or ‘Brexit’ as it has become known, means that Ascom UK like all UK businesses must prepare for the changes that this decision might bring. The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020 and a transitional period has followed until 31 December 2020.

Be prepared for Brexit
As we approach the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020, it is our priority to ensure that we continue to supply our customers, including in the event of the UK and EU failing to agree a trade deal.

We are currently working with Ascom Sweden in order to minimise the potential disruption to our customers following the Brexit transition period ending on 31 December 2020.  Our plans are looking at various solutions to ensure we can maintain the supply to all customers in the UK and Republic of Ireland from 01 January 2021.

We wish to reassure you of our ongoing commitment to continue trade, both within the UK and the EU.
