This White Paper sets out the basis of the UK Government’s position on the framework it would like to develop once the UK has left the EU on Exit Day.
In May 2019, the Government announced the UK and Irish governments had signed a Memorandum of Understanding reaffirming their commitment to the Common Travel Area (CTA). The CTA enables British and Irish citizens to move freely between, and reside in, the UK, the Bailiwick of Jersey, the Bailiwick of Guernsey, the Isle of Man and Ireland.
The UK Government has produced information to help individuals and businesses prepare for 2021.
In the event of a no deal scenario arising at the end of the implementation period, the UK Government has published a series of technical notices which set out what the Government’s overarching approach would be. There is a specific technical notice which sets out how the recognition of professional qualifications would be dealt with in this scenario as well as guidance for UK businesses on providing services to EEA and EFTA countries. The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has also published guidance on the system for recognising EU qualified architects in the UK in the event of a ‘no deal’ EU Exit scenario arising.
The Government has set out provisions for EU citizens coming to the UK after EU exit in the event of a no deal scenario arising at the end of the implementation period.
The House of Commons provides regular updates on the latest developments and discussions as the negotiations between the UK and the EU take place.
Similarly, the EU has published notices providing an outline of the approach that EU Member States should take in the event that a deal cannot be reached at the end of the implementation period. There is a specific notice which sets out how professional qualifications would be dealt with.
Each member state has a competent authority for architects. Competent authorities are responsible for recognising professional qualifications and facilitating the movement of appropriately qualified individuals for the purposes of registration as an architect. We publish a list of these competent authorities.
