On 8 January 2019, the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union adopted Regulation (EU) 2019/26, which complements Union type-approval legislation with regard to the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the Union.
A list of Questions and Answers (Q&A) gives further guidance on the basis of the Regulation in a situation where the United Kingdom (UK) becomes a third country on 30 March 2019 at 00:00h (CET) ('the withdrawal date') without a ratified withdrawal agreement and hence
- without the transition period provided for in the draft Withdrawal Agreement
- without the provisions in relation to 'goods placed on the market' provided for in the draft Withdrawal Agreement
