STOP PRESS: On 24 December 2020, the European Commission and UK government announced an agreement in principle on the legal terms of the future UK-EU relationship. Announced just one week before IP completion day, the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA), and associated agreements came at the eleventh hour, leaving little time to put in place the necessary legal and practical arrangements to make the deal fully operational. The deal was signed on 30 December 2020 and approved by the UK Parliament (along with implementing legislation). Due to the time pressure, the UK and EU agreed that the deal would apply provisionally from 1 January 2021, pending full ratification by the EU. The provisional TCA and associated agreements, declarations and notices were published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) on 31 December 2020. Following ratification and final legal-linguistic revision, the finalised versions will be published in the OJEU by 30 April 2021.

We are reviewing this content accordingly and will keep matters under review pending publication of the ratified agreements. In the meantime, for further details and analysis, see: Brexit highlights—1 January 2021. This special IP completion day edition of the Brexit highlights provides key details and analysis of the deal, plus tips and analysis on the immediate considerations and priorities for lawyers, with links to essential guidance and further reading.
