What Is The Northern Ireland Protocol Of The Withdrawal Agreement Associated With Brexit

The aim of this backstop agreement is to avoid a « hard » border in Ireland where customs controls are necessary. [19] This was one of the issues that the UK government wanted to address unilaterally through the UK Internal Market Act. It abandoned the relevant clauses as a result of that agreement in the Joint Committee. The agreement also provides for a transitional period, which lasts until 31 December 2020 and can be extended once by mutual agreement. During the transition period, EU law will continue to apply to the UK (including participation in the European Economic Area, the Single Market and the Customs Union) and the UK will continue to contribute to the EU budget, but the UK will not be represented in EU decision-making bodies.
