The UK hosted the first Withdrawal Agreement Specialised Committee on the Other Separation Provisions today (Friday 30 October) via videoconference. The meeting was co-chaired by officials from the EU and UK.
The Committee was established by the Withdrawal Agreement to facilitate the implementation and application of its Part Three on Separation Provisions. Most of the provisions of Part Three shall apply at the end of the transition period and ensure, in particular, an orderly winding-down of existing arrangements with regard to matters ongoing at that time.
The UK and the EU reaffirmed their commitment to continued progress in implementing the measures provided for in Part Three of the Withdrawal Agreement.
The co-chairs agreed that the Committee would meet again as necessary to facilitate the implementation of Part Three of the Withdrawal Agreement.
