2025 UK Border Strategy - Ecosystem of Trust
The Government welcomes industry SMEs to join their Ecosystem of Trust as part of the 2025 UK Border Strategy.
The Government, via the Cabinet Office is calling on the international transport industry to submit their interest in piloting a concept relating to the sharing of supply chain data. This has been announced as an Ecosystem of Trust.
As set out in the 2025 UK Border Strategy, the Government are looking to use a combination of data, technology and trusted relationships to deliver robust upstream compliance, allowing processes to be moved away from the frontier and facilitate an improved flow of goods. This Ecosystem of Trust concept will be delivered in partnership with users of the border and the border industry to develop a world-leading technology-enabled border.
In order to pilot the concept, the Government is inviting subject matter experts in the movement of goods to express their interest in participating during the course of 2022.
Initial expressions of interest are due by 31st of January 2022 and following this they will hold workshops with interested parties to set out the key challenges that any solution will need to overcome. This will allow consortia to set out project proposals for their pilots which will be assessed with the best proposals taken forward from May.
If any BIFA Member is interested, we urge them to apply to be part of the consortia.
Full details on the pilot can be found here.
