Brexit—The End of the Transition Period Is Approaching

Facing Uncertainty as the End of the UK’s Transition Period Looms

November 9, 2020
The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020; however, a transition period runs through the end of the year. During this period, the UK has continued to apply all EU rules but has not participated in EU discussions and decision-making.

What happens after December 2020 is under negotiation and remains uncertain even at this late stage. Possibilities still include a hard exit or a deal with continued cooperation and/or an extended transition period.
