EU Preparedness Notices

In early 2018 the Preparedness Unit in the European Commission (established to assist with contingency planning) published a series of notices outlining the consequences of the UK’s Departure from the EU across a range of sectors. These will only apply in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit.

The notices cover areas such as transport, agriculture, fisheries, civil law, data protection, intellectual property, professional qualifications, and goods (including medicines). The complete list of notices can be seen at:

  • It should be noted that, provided there is a Withdrawal Agreement, many of the elements reflected in these notices will not become relevant until the end of any transition period, and even then their application will depend on the nature of any agreement on the future relationship.
