The following part (Articles 126 to 132) contains provisions on the transition period, which runs until the end of 2020 and is necessary for the transition from withdrawal to the future relationship. The transitional period implies an extension of the application of existing EU rules. The only significant exception is that the UK will no longer be part of the EU institutions and bodies and will no longer participate in the EU decision-making process. On 9 July 2020, the European Commission published a Communication entitled “Preparing” to prepare for the end of the transition period between the EU and the UNITED Kingdom. To this end, the European Commission is currently revising the more than 90 sectoral preparation notices published during the negotiations with the United Kingdom on the basis of Article 50. These updated preparation notices on individual areas (e.g. tariffs, including preferential rules of origin, data protection legislation, industrial products, chemicals, services, posted workers, etc.) are intended to help citizens, businesses and public administrations prepare for the inevitable changes that will occur after the end of the transition period, regardless of the outcome of the negotiations on the future relationship. For more information, see: “Open-ended questions are not difficult. They can be solved. So what I`m saying to the prime minister is that you promised a good deal, keep going, negotiate,” he added.
