European Council Approves Withdrawal Agreement

On 22 October 2019, the House of Commons agreed, by 329 votes to 299, to give a second reading to the revised withdrawal agreement (negotiated by Boris Johnson earlier this month), but when the accelerated timetable it had proposed did not receive the necessary parliamentary support, Johnson announced that the law would be overturned. [38] [12] The Council prepared the Extraordinary European Council (Article 50) scheduled for Sunday 25 November 2018 in the form of the EU27 and spoke on draft political declarations on future relations between the EU and the UK. The British Parliament decides that a further extension of the Date of Brexit is necessary because it first wants to examine the corresponding laws before deciding on the withdrawal agreement. The UK government is then asking the EU to postpone the date of Brexit to 31 January 2020. The European Parliament will vote on the agreement on 29 January. Once Parliament has given its compliant opinion, the Council will decide, by written procedure, on the conclusion of the agreement on behalf of the EU. Once adopted, the withdrawal agreement with the UK`s withdrawal from the EU will come into force at midnight (Brussels time) on 31 January 2020. However, this regulation does not apply if an agreement is reached before the date of withdrawal from the United Kingdom. The Brexit Withdrawal Agreement, officially titled the UK`s withdrawal agreement from Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community. is a treaty signed on 24 January 2020 between the European Union (EU), Euratom and the United Kingdom (UK) [5] which sets the conditions for the UK`s withdrawal from the EU and Euratom. The text of the treaty was published on 17 October 2019[6] and is a renegotiated version of an agreement published six months earlier. The previous version of the withdrawal agreement was rejected three times by the House of Commons, leading Queen Elizabeth II to accept Theresa May`s resignation as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and appoint Boris Johnson as the new Prime Minister on 24 July 2019. The European Union and the United Kingdom have reached a draft withdrawal agreement.

January 30, 2019 – The Uk will formally leave the EU on 29 March 2019, unless an extension or negotiated solution is agreed between the UK and the European Commission. At present, there is no agreement on the UK`s data protection status and, above all, on the transfer of personal data from the EU to the UK. In the absence of agreement on these issues or in the event of a ”no deal” Brexit, the UK is considered a ”third country”. This will create additional compliance challenges for organizations.
