About this event

As part of our commitment to support businesses in Greater Manchester to navigate their international trade journey, we are pleased to launch a free series of Bitesize Sessions which will take place fortnightly. The purpose of these sessions is to provide support and advice to businesses trading internationally during this time of change.


These sessions will provide an overview of a different topic each time including: general export and import processes, border controls, and export documentation, etc. There is a full list of upcoming sessions, however, please feel free to let us know what you’d like us to cover in future sessions when registering to attend.


23rd September 2021 - CE Marking

The CE mark is required for all new products which are subject to one or more of the European product safety Directives. It is a visible sign that the manufacturer of the product is declaring conformity with all of the Directives relating to that product. - HSE

Following Brexit the conformity assessment mark for products placed on the market in Great Britain is changing from a CE Mark to a UKCA mark. Join GM Chamber and Nicola Smith from Squire Patton Boggs for a bitesize session on the changes.
