Exports and Border Procedures Between France and the United Kingdom

Circular Letter No. 15834/2021 of 27 May 2021, discloses the procedures applicable to the export of goods to the UK and the French “smart border”, regarding the pairing of the registration plate of the means of transport with the scan of the export accompanying document(s).
