Brexit Bulletin—new and updated Brexit transition guidance published on IP completion day

As the Brexit transition period came to an end at 11pm on 31 December 2020, marking IP completion day in the UK, the government published over 300 items of new and updated Brexit transition guidance. While many of the updates are minor, including simple amendments to reflect the end of the transition period having occurred, a significant number of new documents and webpages were also published. Topics covered include, among others: movement of goods and services, immigration, travel, transport, professional qualifications, legal services, litigation, companies, data, telecoms, IP, life sciences, healthcare, education, energy, environment, benefits, pensions, EU funding and sanctions. Further new and updated guidance may be issued, so stakeholders are advised to monitor these pages for updates.
