General information

On February 1st, 2020, the United Kingdom left the EU. The Withdrawal Agreement provides for a transition period until December 31st, 2020 during which EU law continues to apply to the United Kingdom (for more info see Agreement on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community (pdf, 2,4 MB)). It aimed to ensure that the main political and economic links between the European Union and the United Kingdom were not severed from one day to the next upon departure. The transition period should also provided the time needed to negotiate the future relationship.

Agreement on trade and cooperation between EU and UK was among the instruments signed on December 30th, 2020. This Agreement is provisionally applied since January 1st, 2021 back to back with the end of transitional period pursuant to Withdrawal Agreement, which terminated on December 31st, 2020. The Agreement regulates also police cooperation and judicial cooperation in criminal matters.
