Withdrawal Agreement Implementation Period Extension

106.Es remain questions about the detailed application of this provision. For example, it remains silent on the extent of the UK`s freedom to renegotiate, during the transition, the countless EU agreements that deal with issues in which responsibilities are shared between the EU and the various Member States. 108.Art 132 of the withdrawal agreement provides: that the Joint Committee (for which points 21 to 28) are empowered, before 1 July 2020, to adopt a single decision extending the transition period by a period of « up to one or two years »109,126 AV stated that there would be a transition period beginning with the UK`s withdrawal from the EU and which will expire on 31 December 2020. 107.Article 129 is biased and ambiguous, which seeks to transfer the application of existing EU international agreements to the UK. While it explicitly binds the United Kingdom to its obligations under these international agreements and calls on the Government to refrain, in this context, from any measure deemed « harmful » to the interests of the Union, the status of the United Kingdom as a party to these agreements is treated with a footnote after the date of withdrawal.

Although the UK refused to extend the transition period, it said on Friday it would not be able to carry out full border checks after Brexit for goods arriving from the EU until July 2021.

The revised MDV, adopted at second reading on Friday, nullifies a clause in the previous version that gave MPs the right to authorize an extension of the transition period and instead contains a new clause, #33, which states that « the prohibition on extending the transposition period.
