Since the 1st January 2021, the United Kingdom is no longer a member state of the European Union.
Some types of EU legislation such as regulations and decisions are directly applicable as law in an EU Member State. This meant that, as a member state, these types of legislation applied automatically in the UK, without any further action required by the UK. Other types of EU legislation, such as directives, are indirectly applicable, which means they require a member state to make legislation before becoming law.
The Withdrawal Agreement between the United Kingdom and the European Union set out the arrangements for the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, which included a transition or implementation period, during which EU law continued to apply in the UK. The implementation period expired at 23:00 GMT on 31st December 2020.
As the United Kingdom is no longer a member state of the European Union, legislation that previously applied to the UK now forms part of UK domestic legislation, under the control of the UK’s Parliaments and Assemblies.
Clere Distribution have always remained compliant with any EU regulations and directives directly relating to our business and so we will continue to remain compliant as required by UK law.
