Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have read reports of a scheduled live date in March 2019 which would leave virtually no time for debugging the software and any hardware glitches.  However provided Brexit doesn't introduce a whole new set of rules the actually scaling up from 60 to 300 Million transactions shouldn't present too much of a problem, given modern database and hardware designs, and provided there are enough physical bar code scanners and personnel to input all the data.  There is never a good time to introduce a major software change, but doing so at the point of Brexit seems to be just asking for trouble.
