(1) With regard to the setting of fishing opportunities within the meaning of Article 43, paragraph 3, of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union for a transitional period, the United Kingdom is consulted on fishing opportunities related to the United Kingdom, including in the preparation of relevant international consultations and negotiations. The withdrawal agreement provides for a transitional period until 31 December 2020, during which time the UK will remain in the internal market, to ensure the smooth flow of trade until a long-term relationship is concluded. If no agreement is reached by then, the UK will leave the single market without a trade deal on 1 January 2021. The withdrawal agreement is closely linked to a non-binding political declaration on future relations between the EU and the UK. RESOLVED To ensure a withdrawal ordered by various separation provisions aimed at preventing disruption and ensuring legal certainty for citizens and economic operators, as well as for the judicial and administrative authorities of the Eu and the United Kingdom, but without excluding the separation provisions being replaced by the agreement (s) on future relations, with the notification establishing the provisions that the complainant intends to suspend. Before deciding to suspend parts of an agreement covered in point (b), the complainant first considers whether the suspension of the provision of this agreement in point (a) would be an appropriate response to the offence. Any stay is proportionate to the breach of the undertaking at issue, given the seriousness of the violation and the rights at issue and, if the stay is based on the respondent`s continued non-compliance with the arbitration panel`s recourse under section 173, if the respondent was bound and paid or is still paid by the respondent. 2. If the EU and the United Kingdom fail to reach an agreement, within forty-five days from the date of notification, to determine whether the notified measure brings the respondent into compliance with the provisions of this agreement, each party may request in writing the original arbitration panel to rule on the matter.
This request is communicated simultaneously to the other party.
