The implications of a potential US trade agreement on the UK’s IP framework will depend on any final negotiated text. As negotiations are yet to begin, there is no deal to assess against. However, Government officials are considering the costs and benefits to the UK of similar existing trade agreement provisions and are taking into account stakeholder responses to the Department for International Trade’s consultation on a potential US trade agreement which closed on 26 October 2018.
