He did not fulfill his duties.
The European Commission (EU) said in a statement on Monday that the European Commission had sent a letter to the United Kingdom informing Britain that the British side had violated its obligations under the EU (Brexit) code of conduct in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The panel explained that it had sent a formal notification letter as the first step in the irregularity process, despite the fact that the UK government had unilaterally postponed its full application to the British on March 3, despite its commitment to implement the protocol on products and domestic animals. To be sent to Ireland.
In a statement, the EU group outlined that unilateral action would undermine confidence because London had made its decision without discussing or consulting with any of the organizations responsible for implementing the exit agreement.
The move is a clear departure from the constructive cooperation that has taken place so far, undermining both the tasks of the joint committee responsible for implementing the Brexit agreement and mutual trust and cooperation in good faith.
Created. London has a month to respond to the EU letter.
This is the second time in six months that the EU has taken action against the United Kingdom. On October 1, the European Commission sent a formal notification to London that the British government had tabled a bill in the domestic market in September that, if passed, would violate the rules of Brexit in Ireland and Northern Ireland. The bill was finally withdrawn by London by the end of this year.
Britain withdrew from the EU on 31 January 2020, but during the 11-month transition period that began on the day of the withdrawal, most of the previous terms were in effect in bilateral trade. However, the interim period expires on January 1 this year, at the same time as Britain’s membership in the EU’s single domestic market and customs union.
One of the main goals of the period of change is the time to adopt the key rules for future bilateral relations. After many failed negotiations, this was achieved at the last minute just before Christmas. A key component of the 1246-page agreement is the 100% tariff liberalization of bilateral trade between Britain and the EU – a free trade agreement that provides for free trade and no quotas. However, the agreement does not remove the administrative burden on trade: British exporters, among others, are required to attach customs notices and proofs of origin to their goods and verify them at EU entry points.
