Brexit Impact

This Practice Note contains information on subjects impacted by the UK’s withdrawal from the EU at 11 pm on 31 January 2020 (exit day). As of exit day, the UK is no longer an EU Member State, but it has entered an implementation period during which it continues to be treated by the EU as a Member State for many purposes. For further reading, see Practice Note: Brexit—introduction to the Withdrawal Agreement.

The UK has entered into a transition period following its departure from the EU on 31 January 2020. The purpose of the transition period is to provide a period of time to enter into any future relationship agreement between the UK and the EU. The practical effect of the transition period is that EU law continues to apply to, and in, the UK until 31 December 2020 as if the UK was still an EU member (except in certain limited respects which are not relevant to this note). The terms of the transition period are set out in Articles 126 to 132 of the Withdrawal Agreement.
