Abstract

By electing to leave the European Union, the United Kingdom has chosen, among many other things, to leave the customs union and the single market that includes all member states and reassert its status as an individual member of the World Trade Organisation (WTO). In doing so it will take sole responsibility for the control and governance of its external trade policy with all other WTO members (including the EU) within the framework of WTO rules. This Briefing Paper aims to explore the nature of those WTO commitments and how they might impact the UK from the yet-to-be-set date of the UK’s exit from the EU (B(rexit)day).
