In order to better integrate into the EU market, Ukraine harmonizes many of its standards and standards for industrial and agricultural products. Ukraine also submits its legislation to that of the EU in trade-related areas, such as: the parties will gradually establish a free trade area known as the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (ACFTA), over a maximum transition period of ten years from the entry into force of the agreement. [187] 77) During the transitional period, all British content is currently considered “original products” in the EU and UK exports are referred to as `EU origin`. This means that materials originating in the UK and the rest of the EU and their processing can be used in a tradable way in bilateral trade with existing partners in the EU Free Trade Agreement. This will no longer be the case when existing EU free trade agreements no longer apply to the UK at the end of the transition period. 113) The Energy Community Treaty (“ECT”) extends EU energy market legislation to the contracting parties of the Ect. The parties agreed to implement the EU`s basic energy rules and create an integrated energy market for cross-border energy trade and integration into the EU market. The CEC is located between the EU and the contracting parties, and the UK is not an autonomous member of the ECT. After the end of the transitional period, the United Kingdom will not attempt to become a party to the ECT. Therefore, we have not taken up provisions of the EU-Ukraine agreement on the KSE, in line with the approach taken with regard to other provisions relating to alignment with the EU acquis that do not affect market access. 22) If the transitional agreement cannot enter into force, British companies will lose the preferences negotiated in the EU-Ukraine agreement.

These include the reintroduction of many tariffs and the return to the World Trade Organization`s (WTO) Most Favoured Nation (MFN) with Ukraine. The benefits of trade under preferences under the EU-Ukraine agreement, such as increased trade flows. B, can then be reversed. The rules of origin and methods of administrative cooperation established in the Protocol on Rules of Origin of Origin and its seven annexes are based on the Pan2 model for Euro-Mediterranean Europe. This will allow the accumulation of materials from the EFTA states, Ukraine and other Pan-Euro Med Member States as soon as the corresponding agreements between these countries and Ukraine are in force. 3) To do this, the Government has developed new bilateral agreements that overlap as much as possible with the effects of the UK`s trade agreements with existing partners. The new bilateral agreements provide for entry into force when existing agreements between the EU and a third country no longer apply to the UK or as soon as possible. The agreements will be the starting point for future UK trade agreements with partners.

Article 148 of the EU-Ukraine Agreement refers to the requirement that Ukraine gradually adapt its national procurement legislation to the EU`s procurement acquis.
