The Implications for Import and Export

The UKLA are holding a one day comprehensive training course on Thursday 31st January 2019, 10am to 4pm. Hilton Hotel, Junction 21 of the M1, Leicester.

The departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union in March 2019 and the end date of transition in December 2020, will have a profound impact for goods and services being imported from, and exported to the United Kingdom.

• What are the current import and export procedures that might change?

• How might these procedures change on a single market, free trade or no deal basis?

• What are the implications for organisations and the EU Supply Chain model?

• How can organisations plan ahead amidst the uncertainty of a UK/EU trade agreement?

This comprehensive one day training course gives businesses a chance to take a step back and review their current international trade activities and how the UK no longer being in the EU could impact on your business. This course is aimed at

ILMA Annual Meeting 2018 Palm Desert, October 6-9

Everything Old is New Again was the theme of this year’s meeting of the Independent Lubricant Manufacturers’ Association attended by over a thousand professionals at the JW Marriott Desert Springs resort.

Breakfast of Champions kicked off the formalities on the first day, celebrating the achievements of the golf, croquet, tennis tournament winners and the Sunday fun run. Keynote speaker of the morning was Alex Epstein author of ‘The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels’ who spoke about fossil fuels as a driver of individual mobility, personal freedom, economic progression and societal change.

Blake Eskew of IHS Marki, updated delegates over lunch on disruption in the changing energy and lubricants market. Blake spoke about changes in the Marine sector fuelling demand for low sulphur fuels as featured in October’s Lube magazine, and which many attendees were not aware.

Concurrent presentations on Tractor Hydraulic Fluids, and Export Opportunities followed before a meeting of the Metalworking Fluids Committee discussed the latest position of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and chemicals of concern.

Next day A B Stoddard, leading political commentator, talked about the forthcoming US midterm elections on the morning that the U.S Ambassador to the United Nations resigned. The gala dinner on the last night saw attendees entertained by the desert ‘Rat Pack’ as outgoing ILMA President Dave Croghan of Maxum Petroleum handed over the reins of office to Barbara Kudis of Allegheny Petroleum Products.

Next year’s meeting will be held at Colorado Springs.
