How will Brexit affect my files?
Brexit came into effect on 31 January 2020, meaning that the United Kingdom is no longer a member of the European Union. As we explained at the time, a transition period was established that will end on 31 December 2020. During this period, and according to the Withdrawal Agreement, EU law is still applicable in the United Kingdom. This extends to the EU Trademark and Community Designs Regulations, as well as their implementation instruments. Therefore, nothing has changed during this period.
However, after 1 January 2021, and once this transition period is over, the United Kingdom will apply its own legislation and EU law will no longer be valid in this State. This is why we would like to inform you of the main aspects you must take into account.
