During this implementation period, the UK was no longer a member of the EU but was subject to EU laws, remaining a member of the single market and customs union. On 24 December 2020, the European Commission and UK Government announced an agreement in principle on the legal terms of the future EU-UK relationship ― the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA).
