What volume of Brexit-related legislation is anticipated before IP completion day?

This Q&A briefly outlines the key Brexit-related legislation announced by the UK government, highlighting legislation passed, progressing and pending in preparation for the end of the Brexit transition/implementation period (IP completion day).

The government has introduced a range of primary and secondary legislation to give effect to Brexit in domestic law, including the introduction of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (EU(W)A 2018) and European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Act 2020 and related statutory instruments (Brexit SIs).

The government has also introduced a further package of legislation to deliver specific policy changes relating to, or resulting from the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, in areas such as trade, agriculture, immigration and international sanctions. Some of this legislation has been introduced as specifically under the banner of ‘delivering Brexit’ and other legislation has been announced under different categories, but is also relevant in the context of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.

Some Brexit-related legislation has already passed, with further specific implementing measures being introduced via secondary legislation. However, due to various delays and changes in domestic political priorities, several key pieces of legislation are still progressing through Parliament or awaiting introduction half way through the implementation period.

Below is a quick summary of the key items.
