IP COMPLETION DAY: 11pm (GMT) on 31 December 2020 marks the end of the Brexit transition/implementation period entered into following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. At this point in time (referred to in UK law as ‘IP completion day’), key transitional arrangements come to an end and significant changes begin to take effect across the UK’s legal regime. This document contains guidance on subjects impacted by these changes. Before continuing your research, see Practice Note: What does IP completion day mean for corporate crime?

BREXIT: As of exit day (31 January 2020), the UK is no longer an EU Member State.

For further guidance, see Practice Notes: Brexit—introduction to the Withdrawal Agreement, Extradition post-Brexit and The impact of Brexit on the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) as well as The impact of Brexit on the bars to extradition below.
