UK exits the EU (EU Brexit Preparedness)

You notice I have been posting about EU Notices and my last post is entitled Brexit Preparedness, and this post identifies the EU is also publishing Brexit Preparedness legislative proposals.

The European Commission has now re-organised the EU Notice site online, and retitled it as Brexit Preparedness.

Today they also show the state of play of planned legislative proposals (at 12 June 2018) as a link from the Legislative initiatives tab on the Brexit Preparedness site. That state of play is here. But you can find for yourself on the site where this document is.

Note : the EU Notices are retitled Preparedness Notices, and are identified by European Commission department. This makes them easier to locate, but at moment they are not sortable by date of issue.

Note : the Notices issued by the EU regulators (described as EU decentralised agencies) are found on the original page – this is linked behind the words “Read more on EU Brexit Preparedness Notices”. Here

The reorganised EU Brexit Preparedness online site is here.

UK exits the EU (Brexit Preparedness)

I posted so far a number of times (marked EU Notices) about the guidance issued to stakeholders by the European Commission and the EU regulators. Note : there are now 65 EU Notices issued, and this material is gathered here.

In addition, please note I posted in 2017 about the going forward invalidity of UK issued carbon credits (EUETS scheme).

On 18th April, the FT published an article about approximately 40 new legislative proposals to be issued over the next 10 weeks or so (in addition to the EU Notices). This article is here. At EU level, these legislative proposals are marked “Brexit Preparedness”.

So far :

(1) a wider consultation on WTO schedules (separation of UK from EU) – here.

(2) a proposal on EU type-approval legislation – here.

Yesterday, the Irish state broadcaster RTÉ published an article of a briefing by the Secretary General of the European Commission to the Brexit Steering Group of the European Parliament (and an associated internal document of the planned Brexit Preparedness legislative proposals).

This article identifies the list of areas for these new proposals – banking, tariffs, energy efficiency, medicines, visa, and transport.

Among the proposals is a plan to design a maritime route to link Ireland and the Continental part of the North Sea-Mediterranean Corridor.

The RTE report is here.
