The withdrawal agreement provides for a transitional period until 31 December 2020, during which time the UK will remain in the internal market, to ensure the smooth flow of trade until a long-term relationship is concluded. If no agreement is reached by then, the UK will leave the single market without a trade deal on 1 January 2021. The withdrawal agreement is closely linked to a non-binding political declaration on future relations between the EU and the UK. The agreement defines the goods, services and processes associated with them. Any provision of goods or services legally put on the market before leaving the EU may be made available to consumers in the UK or in the EU Member States (Article 40-41). The EU has taken legal action against the UK after Boris Johnson failed to respond to Brussels` request to abandon laws that would replace the withdrawal agreement and violate international law. Immediately after the announcement of a revised withdrawal agreement on October 17, 2019, Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the DUP said they could not support the new agreement.

However, it is even more serious that the effect of Clause 7A on the effects of the withdrawal agreement is no longer effective with respect to the inconsistent and inconsistent provisions of the article 45 legal provisions. Moreover, by removing the normal rule that statutes are interpreted in accordance with international obligations, Article 45, paragraph 2, point (c) states that the interpretation of the withdrawal agreement must not be inconsistent or inconsistent with Article 45.

“We had asked our British friends to remove the problematic parts of their internal market bill by the end of September,” she said. “This bill is, by its very nature, a violation of the duty of good faith set out in the withdrawal agreement. Moreover, if adopted in this way, it will be in complete contradiction with the protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland. Johnson`s shabby treatment of DUP seems to worry him as he seeks to amend the withdrawal agreement. It must know that this is an international treaty that a party cannot unilaterally “clean up”, let alone amend. Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis admitted to Parliament that it would be a violation of international law and did not seem impressed by the prospect. Former Prime Minister Theresa May, the champion of under-reporting, has questioned the confidence the rest of the world could place in the UK if it rewrites the internationally agreed withdrawal agreement. It would be funny if it wasn`t tragic. Companies are expected to prepare to avoid disruption by registering for foreign trade numbers, checking what they have to pay and familiarizing themselves with new electronic platforms (which the UK government has not yet disclosed).
