Brexit: Council adopts a series of contingency measures for a “no-deal” scenario

The Council today adopted a series of legislative acts as part of its contingency preparations for a “no-deal” Brexit scenario.

The aim of these acts is to limit the most severe damage caused by a disorderly Brexit in specific sectors where it would create a major disruption for citizens and businesses. They come on top of other measures, such as on citizens’ rights, adopted by member states as part of their preparations for a “no-deal” scenario.

These measures are temporary in nature, limited in scope and adopted unilaterally by the EU. They are in no way intended to replicate the full benefits of EU membership or the terms of any transition period, as provided for in the withdrawal agreement. In some areas, they are conditional upon the UK’s reciprocal action.

Social security coordination

The legislative acts adopted today include a regulation which is intended to safeguard, in case of “no deal”, the social security rights of citizens of EU member states in the UK and UK nationals in the EU27 who have benefited from the right of free movement before the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.
