The UK’s new National Security & Investment Act (NSIA) will come into force on January 4, 2022. The Act introduces mandatory notification and pre-clearance requirements applicable to certain acquisitions within 17 key sectors including energy, life sciences and technology.
In order to administer the Act, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has created the Investment Security Unit (ISU). Covington is a core member of the ISU’s external advisory group and we are delighted to invite you to webinar at which the ISU will explain the new regime and its potential impact on transactions. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
As part of its preparation for the implementation to the NSIA, BEIS has developed an NSI digital communications toolkit that can be found here.
