To assist, the European Commission is reviewing, and where necessary updating, the over 100 sector-specific stakeholder ‘preparedness notices’ it published during the Article 50 negotiations with the United Kingdom.
An updated so-called ‘notice for readiness’ for EU rules in relation to trade marks and Community designs has been issued and can be found underneath.
All interested parties are reminded of the legal situation applicable as of the end of the transition period whether a future partnership agreement is concluded or not.
The notice also explains certain rules of the withdrawal agreement where relevant as well as the rules applicable to Northern Ireland as of the end of the transition period.
