FRANCE – ANSES: Brexit impact on parallel trade permits

Following the upcoming end of the transition period set up in the context of the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union, ANSES published a note to update the procedures relating to the mutual recognitions and parallel trade permits in France.

It should be noted that for parallel trade permits, products from the United Kingdom will no longer be imported in France after 31.12.2020. Thus, all parallel trade permits with UK origine will be withdrawn on 31.12.2020 and those with multiple origins will be amended from 01.01.2021 to remove the UK origin.

Products already on the French market before 31.12.2020 are allowed to be made available to users under the following conditions:

  • A 6-month grace period for sale and distribution is granted (up to 30.06.2021)
  • An additional 12-month grace period is granted for storage and use of products (up to 30.06.2022)
