The United Kingdom continues to respect all European rules and retains access to the internal market and to the Customs Union now that it is still in the transition period.
Currently, the United Kingdom and the European Union are engaged in negotiations on their future relationship, in order to determine in particular the trade rules that will apply at the end of the transition period on December 31, 2020.
Whatever the outcome of these negotiations, the end of the transition period will have consequences for citizens and economic actors, whether an agreement on the future relationship will be concluded or not. Therefore, the end of the transition period should now be anticipated.
