EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement: A new relationship, with big changes - Brochure

Brussels, 08/01/2021 - 11:24, UNIQUE ID: 210108_4

On 1 January 2021, the United Kingdom left the EU Single Market and Customs Union, and all EU policies. As a result, it has lost all the rights and benefits it had had as an EU Member State, and will no longer be covered by the EU’s international agreements. This will bring far-reaching changes, affecting citizens, businesses, public administrations and stakeholders in both the EU and the UK. To limit the disruption insofar as possible, the EU and the United Kingdom have spent the past year negotiating the terms of a new “Trade and Cooperation Agreement” to govern their future relations now that the UK is a third country.
