Uk Withdrawal Agreement News

On the EU side, the European Parliament also approved the ratification of the agreement on 29 January 2020[40] and the Council of the European Union approved the conclusion of the agreement by email on 30 January 2020[41]. [42] Accordingly, the European Union also deposited its instrument of ratification of the Agreement on 30 January 2020, thus concluding the Agreement[43] and brought it into force on the date of the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the Union, on 31 January 2020, at 11 p.m GMT. The Withdrawal Agreement also provides for the United Kingdom to leave the Convention establishing the Statute for the European Schools, with the United Kingdom being bound by the Convention and the accompanying rules for accredited European Schools until the end of the last academic year of the transition period, i.e. the end of the 2020-2021 spring semester.

According to Sam Lowe, a fellow at the Centre for European Reform, the amendment excludes labour standards from dispute settlement mechanisms. [27] In addition, the mechanism for a level playing field has been moved from the legally binding Withdrawal Agreement to the Political Declaration[24] and the line in the Political Declaration that ”the UK will consider aligning itself with EU legislation in relevant areas” has been deleted. [26] As regards the Irish border issue, the agreement is accompanied by a protocol on Northern Ireland (the ”backstop”) which defines a position of recidivism which only enters into force if no other effective regime is demonstrated before the end of the transitional period. If this is the case, the UK will eclipse the EU`s external common law and Northern Ireland will remain in the internal market aspects until such a manifestation is achieved. None of the parties can unilaterally withdraw from this customs union.

The aim of this backstop agreement is to avoid a ”hard” border in Ireland, where customs controls are necessary. [19] The British Parliament approved the draft agreement of the time by order, on 23 January 2020, of the implementing provisions (European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Act 2020]. . . .
