The EU-UK Joint Committee has agreed on the first joint implementation report on residence rights. The report, published on 23 October 2020, provides a first overview of national implementation measures with regard to residence in the European Union and the United Kingdom, in line with article 18(1) of the Withdrawal Agreement. The report would be updated at least every 3 months until the end of 2021.

The report was agreed in the context of the fourth regular meeting of the EU-UK Joint Committee on the implementation and application of the Withdrawal Agreement which was held on 19 October 2020. In this context, the EU side strongly reiterated the need for the United Kingdom to substantially accelerate work on all necessary measures to ensure the implementation of the withdrawal agreement, in particular with regard to border control posts, value added tax and the registration of Northern Irish traders for VAT purposes.
