Withdrawal Agreement Direct Effect

It can be concluded that there are good reasons to associate the direct effect with the obligation to detail the rights of citizens in the transposition law. Unfortunately, the withdrawal agreement explicitly requires only the first. The new EUWA s.1B provides that „EU-derived national legislation“, as it enters into force in national legislation just before the day of release, will continue to operate under national law on the day and after the release date. (b) all these remedies and procedures, foreseen from time to time in or as part of the withdrawal agreement, are not considered a direct EU right after the end of the implementation period: the withdrawal agreement therefore appears to be based on the assumption that EU citizens would be duly protected by the transfer of the concept of direct effect into an international agreement applicable to a non-EU country. , as if they were inside the EU. Unfortunately, in the next section, I will say that this does not take into account the particular challenges posed by implementation in a country outside the EU and the fundamental error of the withdrawal agreement. (e) Article 8C of this Act (jurisdiction under the Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland in the Withdrawal Agreement) and in order to adequately protect its citizens should abandon its formalistic approach and take into account the fact that the specific challenges of implementing the UK outside the UNION require specific safeguards that go beyond a simple copy and copy of union`s legal standards and procedural principles. Such guarantees can be provided by specific provisions of the withdrawal agreement on how the UK will implement a simple registration system and by a clearer requirement that provisions relating to citizens` rights be defined in primary law in the withdrawal agreement. Such guarantees could also be enshrined in a protocol to the withdrawal agreement, in which the UK would detail how it would implement the agreement.

This would take into account the particular challenges posed by implementation in the United Kingdom and would make the UK`s commitments legally binding internationally, without having to reopen the basis for an agreement on the draft withdrawal agreement. Footnote 64 Such a protocol could then be transposed into primary law, along with the withdrawal agreement. Second, anchoring standards in primary legislation ensures stability and visibility and facilitates enforcement and control.
