Details

At the moment, EU law creates consistent practices across the UK in a range of policy areas. This document sets out the UK government’s provisional assessment of where we’ll need to maintain those practices in common frameworks after we leave the EU. The analysis set out will continue to develop over time as the UK government and devolved administrations discuss this.

The positions set out are without prejudice to the outcome of our negotiations with the EU. They are also subject to the need to find practical solutions that recognise the unique economic, social and political context of the land border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.
