Short description: Webinar on the most relevant legal profiles following the process following the Referendum of 23 June 2016, which led to BREXIT on 31 January 2020. The end of the transitional period on 31 December 2020 led to the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (“TCA”) of 24 December 2020 which avoided the “No Deal”. Since January 1st, 2021, the United Kingdom is no longer part of the EU’s customs and tax territory. The TCA creates a free trade area for goods without extra duties or quotas for products, but introduces new rules on rules of origin and labelling of Italian products exported to the United Kingdom as well as new rules for online international sales contracts. The TCA does not clearly regulate the area of financial services, nor it provides detailed regulation for automatic mutual recognition of professional qualifications. All in all, Brexit and TCA require an assessment of current and future international commercial contracts between EU and British companies as well as an evaluation of civil and commercial dispute resolution tools, including arbitration.
