The text of the UK-Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) is still undergoing legal checks. After it is finalised, the agreement will be signed and then the full text will be laid in parliament. Furthermore, a parliamentary report, setting out in detail any areas where there are material differences between the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) and the UK-Japan CEPA, will be published.
