The agreement was revised as part of the Johnson Department renegotiation in 2019. The amendments amend about 5% of the text Section 13 of the Act contains a number of procedures for approval by Parliament for the various possible outcomes of negotiations between the government and the EU. One of the results is that there will be an agreement between the UK and the EU, in accordance with Article 50 of the Treaty on european Union, setting out the terms of the UK`s exit from the EU. The law calls the agreement a withdrawal agreement. The Act provides, Section 13], that before the ratification of the withdrawal agreement, a legislative act of Parliament must be adopted by Parliament as a treaty between the United Kingdom and the European Union. The law authorizes the adoption and in force on the day or before the withdrawal for the purposes of the implementation of the withdrawal agreement, but only if, by then, an act of Parliament “authorizing the final conditions of the UK`s withdrawal from the EU” has been adopted. Alternatively (section 13 (10), the government is not obliged to publish an agreement in principle on the content of the withdrawal regime and the framework for future relations between the EU and the UK before Monday 21 January 2019, less than 11 weeks before the end of the compulsory negotiation period on Friday 29 March. and is due to have a debate on this in Parliament in a few days.

Any provision of goods or services legally put on the market before leaving the EU may be made available to consumers in the UK or in the EU Member States (Article 40-41).
