On 28 January 2021, Eurojust published a note for judicial practitioners on future cooperation in criminal matters with the United Kingdom. This practical guidance provides an overview of the old, transitional, and new regimes and their respective application. It sets out the applicable measures with regard to surrender, mutual legal assistance, exchange of criminal record information, and freezing and confiscation of funds. Furthermore, the guidance provides a chart to clearly illustrate cooperation under the transitional and new regime.

Concerning the cooperation between Eurojust and the UK, the agenda foresaw the conclusion of a working arrangement that would also enable the secondment of a UK Liaison Prosecutor to Eurojust (for the conclusion of the working arrangement on 12 February 2021 → separate news item).

A documentation of criminal justice-related items after Brexit on 1 January 2021 is provided at the EJN website. Eucrim also published a summary of the relevant provisions for the protection of the EU’s financial interests and European criminal law in the TCA (à separate news items).
