Approved Exporter Status for Brandon Medical

Brandon Medical is proud to announce that it has been accredited with Approved Exporter Status as governed by HM Revenue and Customs. This opens the way for simpler trading between the company and countries entered into the Free Trade Agreement (FTA).

Brandon Medical the innovative surgical lighting company, currently exports 45% of production overseas, all from their factory based in Leeds, UK. By securing Approved Export Status, they will be able to enhance their trade with international distribution partners including Hyun Medical (South Korea) and Berclan (Mexico) but also provide preferential incentives for future target markets.

The European Union (EU) – Free Trade Agreement (FTA) was introduced with the objective of providing UK exporters substantial benefits for trading internationally. These benefits include a lower percentage of import duties and other barriers to trade being reduced allowing freer trade between the EU and benefiting companies. To reap the benefits of such incentives, companies must apply for the status and be granted by HM Revenue and Customs.

The Approved Export Status will aid Brandon Medical in the development of their global brand, reducing barriers to trade and promoting stronger links in international markets.
