The European Council, by its Decision (EU) 2019/584, extended the United Kingdom's (UK) withdrawal date until 31 October 2019. The Withdrawal Agreement may enter into force on an earlier date, should the Parties complete their respective ratification procedures before 31 October 2019. Consequently, the withdrawal should take place on the first day of the month following the completion of the ratification procedures or on 1 November 2019, whichever is the earliest.
Until the new withdrawal date, the UK will remain a Member State with full rights and obligations.
