UK-EU Trade and Co-Operation Agreement – Summary

Published by the UK Government on 24 December 2020

The UK and the EU have agreed a Trade and Cooperation Agreement, an Agreement on Nuclear Cooperation and an Agreement on Security Procedures for Exchanging and Protecting Classified Information.

These Agreements are designed to honour the instruction of the British people – expressed in the referendum of 2016 and the general election last year – to take back control of our laws, borders, money, trade and fisheries.

It changes the basis of our relationship with our European neighbours from EU law to free trade and friendly cooperation.
