The UK and EU Secure a Free Trade Agreement

The negotiations between the UK and the EU have successfully come to a conclusion on the 24 December 2020. The Free Trade Agreement, which has been agreed in principle, has been announced by Boris Johnson and Ursula von der Leyen in respective press conferences.  The deal will now be ratified by each party, and is expected to be approved in time to enter into force on the 1 January 2021 following the end of the transition period contemplated in the Withdrawal Agreement.

CTPA will communicate the implication of the deal to the cosmetic industry in due course, once the full text has been made publicly available.
