Brexit Customs Agreement

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 6:06 pm

The Conservative and Unionist Party, the party of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, won a comfortable majority in the British general election on 12th December 2019. This allowed Boris Johnson to impose his agreement in the British Parliament on December 20, 2019. The UK left the EU with a withdrawal agreement on 31 January 2020. The Withdrawal Agreement provides for a transitional period until 31 December 2020, without any change that could affect customs procedures. This Title concerns the customs procedures applicable to goods which are moved from the customs territory of the United Kingdom to the customs territory of the Union and vice versa (Article 47). Procedures which start before the end of the transitional period `shall be treated as transfers within the Union as regards import and export requirements`. The agreement also covers the end of temporary detention or customs procedures (Article 49). The Withdrawal Agreement provides for a transitional period until 31 December 2020, during which the United Kingdom will remain in the internal market to ensure smooth trade until a long-term relationship is agreed. In the absence of an agreement on that date, the UK will leave the internal market on 1 January 2021 without a trade agreement. The Withdrawal Agreement is closely linked to a non-binding political declaration on the future relationship between the EU and the UK.

The Irish backstop is repealed and replaced by a new Protocol on Northern Ireland/Republic of Ireland. The whole of the UK is leaving the EU customs union as a single customs territory, with Northern Ireland included in all future UK trade agreements. . . .
