Omicron Statement and Policy regarding the UK's transition period with the the European Union and future trading relationships.
The UK has now formally left the European Union and entered into a transition period, which is scheduled to end on 31st December 2020. During this transition period, it is anticipated there be no impact on the import or export of goods into and out of the UK. Throughout 2020 extensive negotiations will be taking place between the UK and foreign governments to establish new trading relationships and policies.
Omicron realises that the results of these negotiations have the potential to impact the supply of our products into the UK marketplace, and as such we will continue to monitor, interpret and predict these potential impacts and plan appropriately to mitigate them. 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. We continue to observe and implement the advice of the relevant UK government agencies.
Omicron has completed a comprehensive analysis of the transport lanes between the EU, UK, and the US mainland and continue to hold an increased scope and quantity of UK-based stock to mitigate future potential impacts. This stock will continue to be used to facilitate scheduled servicing, breakdown and repair visits and to supply sales orders. It will be continue to be replenished accordingly.
