Trade agreements during the transition period

The UK has left the EU. We have entered a transition period until 1 January 2021.


The Withdrawal Agreement sets out how the UK is able to continue to be covered by EU-third country trade agreements during the transition period.


On this basis, EU trade agreements can continue to apply to the UK.


Where EU trade agreements apply, UK and EU content will continue to count toward the rules of origin requirements in EU trade agreements during the transition period, in exactly the same way as now.


The EU has issued a notification to third countries outlining this approach.


If you are having problems trading during the transition period, please contact your local international trade adviser.
