(Reuters) – The British government is planning laws ending key parts of the Brexit withdrawal agreement and risking the collapse of trade talks with Brussels, the Financial Times reported on Sunday. Additional certificates of protection are governed by EU law, but they are requested and issued as individual national rights. The withdrawal agreement confirms that N. SCS applications expired at the end of the transition period are granted and that they enjoy the same level of protection as existing CPS. The agreement was revised as part of the Johnson Department renegotiation in 2019. The amendments fit about 5% of the text.  The agreement stipulates that the United Kingdom must respect, under the backstop agreement, the “level playing field” for competition and state aid, as well as employment, environmental and tax standards. These measures are designed to ensure that UK companies are not able to outsource EU industry. The EU and the UK have reached an agreement on the withdrawal agreement with a revised protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland (abolition of the “backstop”) and a revised political declaration. On the same day, the European Council (Article 50) approved these texts. The main provisions of the withdrawal agreement are: the agreement defines the goods, services and processes associated with them.
Any provision of goods or services legally put on the market before leaving the EU may be made available to consumers in the UK or in the EU Member States (Article 40-41). Neither the agreement nor the political declaration gives any indication of the future relationship in terms of choice of law, freedom of decision and recognition and enforcement of judgments. The UK has already hinted that it hopes to agree on a large-scale agreement, broadly in line with the current position. 6. The part of the institutional and final provisions (Articles 158-185) contains rules to ensure uniform interpretation and application of the agreement. In addition, a joint commission and dispute resolution procedure will be put in place to manage the agreement. This section also sets out the objective that the parties will do everything in their power to reach agreement on their future relations before the end of the transition period. The Brexit Withdrawal Agreement, officially titled the UK`s withdrawal agreement from Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community. is a treaty signed on 24 January 2020 between the European Union (EU), Euratom and the United Kingdom (UK)  which sets the conditions for the UK`s withdrawal from the EU and Euratom.
