In the absence of any further action, the EEA Agreement will no longer operate in respect of the UK when we leave the EU in March 2019.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>However, at the March European Council we agreed with the EU that the UK is to be treated as a Member State for the purposes of international agreements for the duration of the implementation period. The EU will notify other parties of this approach in due course.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>This includes the EEA Agreement, which governs crucial elements of our trading and non-trading relationship with the three EEA EFTA states - Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>Once the implementation period ends, the EEA Agreement will no longer apply to the UK. We will instead seek to put in place new arrangements to secure our relationship with the EEA EFTA states.</p> more like this
