Omicron Statement and Policy regarding the UK's upcoming withdrawal
from the European Union (BREXIT)
Omicron takes the possible impact of BREXIT very seriously and began planning for this eventuality over 18 months ago. The topic is addressed as part of our ISO9001:2015 certificated Quality Management System, and as such a risk analysis has been conducted and is revisited regularly, as well as being subject to internal and external audit processes.
Omicron considers Brexit has the potential to impact the supply of our products and services to our customers. The details of Brexit regarding trade, standards (including quality), and the various issues specific to product import are still to be clarified. However, as a responsible supplier we have concluded that we need to take several mitigating actions to prepare for a ‘No-Deal’ Brexit.
To this end, Omicron is applying for ‘Authorised Economic Operator (AEO)’ status and are completing our analysis of the transport lanes between the EU and the UK, and have commenced a stock build to mitigate potential delays at UK borders. This stock will be used to facilitate scheduled servicing, breakdown and repair visits and to supply sales orders. BREXIT will have no impact on our IT systems.
