Ongoing Union judicial and administrative proceedings - position paper

This paper outlines the United Kingdom's position with regards to judicial and administrative proceedings that are ongoing at the point of exit from the European Union.



The United Kingdom (UK) is leaving the European Union, and our ambition is to secure a smooth and orderly exit. It will be important to have a clear position on the status of both any UK legal cases before the European Court of Justice (CJEU), and any administrative procedures before the Union institutions, offices and agencies that on exit day have not yet concluded. This is in order to minimise uncertainty and disruption for individuals and businesses.
