UK - EU Trade Deal

The UK has left the European Union, and the transition period after Brexit has come to an end. The UK-EU trade deal, the Trade and Cooperation Agreement, means quota-free and tariff-free trade can continue to take place between the UK and EU subject to Rules of Origin (RoO) requirements. It has been signed by the UK Government, European Commission and EU Council and implementing legislation has been passed at Westminster to put it into law in the UK.
