In January 2018, the European Commission launched a website that informs citizens and stakeholders of the consequences of the UK’s departure from the EU in a range of policy areas. The website is fed with documents on an ongoing basis that provide information on the legal and practical implications of the UK’s withdrawal and the EU rules in a given policy area. The Commission also regularly provides updates on the Brexit negotiations, aiming at preparing the public if the EU Treaties cease to apply to the UK from 30 March 2019, 00.00h (CET). Regarding the area of European criminal law and the protection of the EU’s financial interests, the following notices to stakeholders are of interest so far:
- - Withdrawal of the UK in the field of data protection.
In the area of customs and indirect taxation, the Commission has also published a position paper on customs related matters required for an orderly withdrawal of the UK from the Union.
