Commission welcomes political agreement on new internal rules for the enforcement of the EU’s agreements with the UK

The European Commission welcomes the political agreement last night by the European Parliament and Council on a set of internal EU rules and procedures to enforce the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement and the Trade and Cooperation Agreement.

This agreement establishes a procedure to consult EU Member States prior to the adoption of any measure that may be needed to protect the EU’s interests under its agreements with the UK. It also includes a set of criteria that will govern the adoption of possible EU measures if they ever had to be adopted.
