Future EU-UK Partnership: European Commission takes first step to launch negotiations with the United Kingdom
On 31 January 2020, the United Kingdom withdrew from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom).
The arrangements for the withdrawal are set out in the Withdrawal Agreement, which entered into force on 1 February 2020. It provides for a transition period during which EU law continues to apply to the United Kingdom until at least 31 December 2020, unless the Joint Committee established under the Withdrawal Agreement adopts, before 1 July 2020, a single decision extending the transition period for up to 1 or 2 years.
