The Trade and Cooperation Agreement between the European Union (EU) and the United Kingdom has been provisionally applied since January 1, 2021.
The agreement between the EU and the UK protects the interests of European citizens as well as those of businesses based in the EU and will allow further cooperation in areas of mutual interest.
With the entry into force of the new EU-UK agreement, important changes have taken place.
The United Kingdom has left the Union's single market and customs union and has withdrawn from all of the Union's policies and international agreements. The EU and the UK now constitute 2 separate markets and 2 separate legal and regulatory areas.
Following the completion of all the procedures necessary to ratify the Withdrawal Agreement, the United Kingdom had left the EU on January 31, 2020. Since February 1, 2020 a transition period was in place until 31 December 2020.
More detailed information on citizens' rights after the withdrawal is available on this website.
