Communication published by the European Commission on 4 September 2019, which urges all stakeholders to make any necessary final adjustments to their plans in relation to a withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Union (EU) without an agreement on 1 November.
The sixth Brexit preparedness Communication highlights that actors should not rely on the assumption that another extension to Article 50 process would be requested by the United Kingdom and subsequently agreed by the European Council.
In parallel to this Communication, the Commission adopted three legislative proposals to take into account the postponement of the date of withdrawal, by extending, as necessary, the duration of existing contingency measures in the areas of transport and fisheries or providing a framework for 2020 in the context of the EU budget. It also adopted two further legislative proposals as part of a package allowing for contingency financial support, if necessary. Finally, it as sent for consultation to Member State experts a delegated act adapting the deadlines provided for by the contingency Regulation on the 2019 EU budget to the existing withdrawal date.
