Once the implementation period ends, the European Environment Agency (EEA) Agreement will no longer apply to the UK. The nature of our relationship with the EEA during the implementation period and beyond is a matter for negotiations.

Whether Regulation (EC) No 401/2009 will form part of the common rule book will be subject to these negotiations.
