Launch of central complaint point for EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement

Monitoring the application of the Trade and Cooperation Agreement with the United Kingdom is central in ensuring that European Union citizens and businesses can fully benefit from it. Do you have a complaint about the way in which the United Kingdom is implementing the Agreement? Please answer a few simple questions and we will direct your complaint to the appropriate Commission service. Submit a complaint

If you have a complaint about the way in which a Member State of the European Union is implementing the Agreement, please use the complaint form for breach of Union law.


The EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement concluded between the EU and the UK sets out preferential arrangements in areas such as trade in goods and in services, digital trade, intellectual property, public procurement, aviation and road transport, energy, fisheries, social security coordination, law enforcement and judicial cooperation in criminal matters, thematic cooperation and participation in Union programmes. It is underpinned by provisions ensuring a level playing field and respect for fundamental rights.

While it will by no means match the level of economic integration that existed while the UK was an EU Member State, the Trade and Cooperation Agreement goes beyond traditional free trade agreements and provides a solid basis for preserving our longstanding friendship and cooperation.

The Trade and Cooperation Agreement was signed on 30 December 2020, was applied provisionally as of 1 January 2021 and entered into force on 1 May 2021.
