Some of our customers have concerns about a No Deal Brexit, particularly around the availability of products, so we’d thought we’d take a moment to outline Sheffmed’s position.
As a supplier of medical and surgical instruments, we have discussed this issue directly with the Department for Health. Those products which are not manufactured in the UK itself are manufactured outside of the EU and do not cross EU borders during import. Because of this, we foresee very little disruption to stock and deliveries.
As a business, we have an EORI number but are not registered with the TSP as we do not import from the EU. We typically hold a minimum of 6-8 weeks stock for the majority of our products, with some items having 12 weeks stock, as well as another 12 weeks stock at our manufacturing bases ready for import to our warehouses.
So as UK membership of the EU does not affect Sheffmed’s ability to manufacture, sell or distribute, we do not have an official contingency plan, but should you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
