The United Kingdom has left the European Union, marking the beginning of an 11-month-long transition or “implementation” period. The Government has ruled out extending the transition period beyond the end of 31 December 2020. The transition period is designed to provide time for the details of the new relationship between the UK and the EU to be agreed. The EU will not negotiate the details of new arrangements with the UK while it is still a member of the EU.
During the transition period
The UK will continue to be treated as a member of the single market and customs union, and will remain a part of the EU’s economic institutions and security cooperation arrangements during the transition period, according to a guide to the transition period by the Institute for Government. During this period, freedom of movement will remain in place and citizens’ rights will be unchanged. The UK will still be subject to EU law and the rulings of the European Court of Justice.
