(10 April 2019) – The European Commission has taken stock of the European Union’s intense ‘no-deal’ preparations and has issued practical guidance to Member States in 5 areas.

These areas include citizens’ residence and social security entitlements, data protection, medicine and medical devices, police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters, and fisheries.

The aim of today’s guidance is to ensure the smooth practical implementation of EU and national contingency measures, if the United Kingdom were to leave the EU without a deal on 12 April, or at a later date, ¬and to maintain a coordinated approach throughout any such ‘no-deal’ phase.

A ‘no-deal’ withdrawal will cause disruption and is not desirable, but the EU is fully prepared for it.
