Article 50 Triggered

March 29, 2017

The UK Government today formally triggered the process of leaving the EU by invoking Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union. How are the negotiations likely to affect your business? Defining your priorities, developing concrete proposals, communicating these to influencers and decision-makers, and planning for different potential outcomes are all now critical.

Following the passing of the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Act by Parliament on 13 March, the UK Government has today formally initiated the process of leaving the EU.

The EU Treaties will cease to apply to the UK when the withdrawal agreement to be negotiated between the UK and the other 27 Member States enters into force or in two years, whichever is earlier, unless there is unanimous agreement to extend the process. Until that date, the UK will remain a member of the EU, will still be in the single market and still subject to all EU laws and rules.
