The latest news from the British Plastic Federation is that they have joined their European counterpart, ‘The European Plastics Converters Association’. They have joined forces to update a co-authored position paper for the plastic industry’s focus regarding Brexit negotiations, which is said to state the need to eliminate customs and minimise the possible non-tariff barriers. The BPF want to avoid any disturbances of the current plastics trade between the UK and the EU.
