Warning message:

This webpage on negotiations under Article 50 is no longer updated. Updates of the notices below, taking account the transition period and the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement are published on this page of the new dedicated website: Getting ready for the end of the transition period.

For information on the negotiations on the future partnership between the European Union and the United Kingdom, please click here.

The withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union implies the need to make sure that the future EU27 legal framework is and remains fully operational after the withdrawal. The proposed measures are specific, limited and targeted at remedying the negative impact of a disorderly withdrawal or at enabling the necessary adaptation of the legislation.

The below list includes the proposals and legal acts as adopted by the Commission. You can also consult the list of Preparedness and contingency measures to be submitted for vote in relevant Committees in 2019.

Citizens and stakeholders may share their views on the Commission’s initiatives in preparation through the Better Regulation portal: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/better-regulation/have-your-say_en
