Jersey Ready for Brexit bannerJersey Ready for Brexit banner

The UK Government announced that it will be publishing a series of technical notices on Brexit-related matters during August and September 2018. These notices will set out information to allow UK businesses and citizens to understand what they would need to do in a ‘no deal’ scenario, so they can make informed plans and preparations.

Whilst Jersey’s position differs from that of the UK, in that we have a limited relationship with the European Union as set out under Protocol 3 to the UK’s Treaty of Accession, there are certain areas where the Island will be impacted.

The UK Government has said that a scenario in which the UK leaves the EU without agreement (a ‘no deal’ scenario) remains unlikely given the mutual interests of the UK and the EU in securing a negotiated outcome.

Nonetheless, in line with the UK, it is our duty as a responsible government to prepare for all eventualities, including ‘no deal’, until we can be certain of the outcome of those negotiations.

To this end the Government of Jersey’s Brexit planning has been developed on the basis of a ‘no deal’ or ‘hard Brexit’ scenario, since the UK referendum on EU membership took place in June 2016. We are aware of the potential risks to the Island presented by a hard Brexit and have engaged in contingency planning to ensure that all Government Departments are prepared for and able to manage those risks.

We will be publishing the Government of Jersey’s initial position in relation to the relevant areas covered by each of the technical notices on this page.

More detailed responses will be published in the coming weeks, when the technical notices have been considered in full by the relevant government departments and as detailed discussions with the UK and EU progress. This will be accompanied by public and industry engagement, to ensure that the preparations we are undertaking for Brexit are well understood, and that businesses and individuals know what steps they may need to take in particular in relation to a no-deal scenario.
