Consequences of Brexit: not to be underestimated

After the fuel shortages, will there be a shortage of mineral water in UK restaurants…?

In July, the UK made it clear that no EU mineral waters can be exported to the UK from January 7, 2022, unless the UK authorities grant formal approval to do so in the coming months.

The decision does not apply to exports marketed exclusively in Northern Ireland). Brands such as Evian and San Pellegrino would be affected if the UK doesn’t give approval.

If no approval is passed in the UK, the EU will almost certainly hope to adopt an equivalent measure of non-recognition of the UK’s natural mineral waters previously marketed within the EU.
