You can continue to use EU materials or transformations in your exports to Israel. The United Kingdom and Israel must have met the requirements of the origin protocol. You must also ensure that the work or transformation you are doing in the UK goes beyond the minimum operations mentioned in the agreement and that the other relevant conditions are met. The UK auto sector could avoid up to $9 million in tariffs on its exports, which would apply if the deal was not in force, while exporters of machinery and machinery could avoid up to $5 million a year. If you have questions about trade from January 1, 2021, contact the International Trade Division (ITD). If you expect the goods to pass through, when the EU-Israel trade agreement no longer applies to the UK, you can obtain a retrospective certificate of origin. This shows that the products originate in the United Kingdom and can benefit from preferential conditions when your products arrive on the date on which the UK-Israel Trade and Partnership Agreement is foreseen. The agreement is expected to enter into force on 1 January 2021 (or as soon as possible). This will further strengthen the UK`s trade relationship with Israel, which reached a value of $4 billion until the third quarter of 2018.

The UK has left the EU, but its trade relations remain unchanged until the end of the year. That`s because it`s in an 11-month transition – designed to give both sides some time to negotiate a new trade deal. An agreement on continuity of trade will allow British businesses and consumers to continue to trade with Israel after we leave the European Union. See the list of minimum transactions in Article 7 of the Origin Protocol in the text of the UK-Israel Trade and Partnership Agreement. Earlier this month, Netanyahu and Johnson agreed to start talks on creating a free trade area after Brexit between Israel and Britain, Netanyahu said. As of 31 October 2020[update], the United Kingdom had concluded 24 trade agreements with 53 countries, some using mutatis mutandis an approach mutatis mutandis to quickly emulate existing agreements between the EU and these countries, specifying only these small areas of differentiation (which has reduced some agreements to about 40 pages from the initial region of 1400). Among them are significant economies — by nominal GDP — such as South Korea, Switzerland, Israel and South Africa.
