The Future UK-EU Relationship

David Davis: Future UK-EU deal will allow for “significant regulatory divergence” (12th April 2018)

At yesterday’s Wall Street journal event in London, UK Brexit secretary David Davis suggested that the future UK-EU deal will contrast from current regulations, however the relationship will continue to retain ‘mutual recognition of outcomes’.

Additionally, Davis highlighted that he wants the bulk of future UK-EU terms ‘nailed down’ by October- but acknowledged that ‘it won’t be in legal form at that point’. A final withdrawal agreement will need to be in place by March 29th 2019. The transition period is scheduled to run until the 31st December 2020. 

Further discussions from Davis can be found at Open Europe and Business Insider.
