On March 29, 2017, the United Kingdom notified its intention to leave the European Union. Therefore, this State will become an independent state of the EU, to which the ex-lege European legislation will no longer apply, unless a Brexit is negotiated with agreement.
Last Thursday, January 9, the United Kingdom Parliament definitively approved the “Brexit” agreement with the EU and with it, the date of departure from the European Union: January 31, 2020.
Although a negotiation process is now underway on what the United Kingdom’s framework for future relations with the EU will be, (which is expected to end on December 31, 2020), different documents and guidelines have already been approved by the EU relating not only to the withdrawal process, but also to future relations with the United Kingdom after Brexit.
