This is very good advice. There is at least 18 months, and time is actually running out to get this sorted. Fight all the necessary fights about this and win the battles necessary NOW. Make the arrangements and perhaps get them tested. Then check every month leading up to 2020 in case there is some unexplained change of heart by authorities.
