The EUDEL is leading on the campaign concerning the need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme. EU citizens and their family members who have been living in the UK since before 31 December 2020 and who want continue to live, work and study in the UK need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme before 30 June 2021. There are only 15 days left. Applying late may lead to the temporary loss of rights, like access to healthcare or the right to work. Not applying at all will lead to the permanent loss of these rights (news story).
- The SEP provides now the reference to a dedicated short guidance on how to lodge complaints related to the UK ( link ). You will see that we are recommending that the form related to TSD should be used to cover non-regression areas and TSD, while the form related to market access should be used with respect to subsidies, competition, SOEs, taxation, and other trade subjects (market access and regulatory aspects). It also clarifies that complaints on labour and social standards, environment and climate or subsidy control, may also include information relevant to the application of rebalancing measures.
- The forms include limited modifications (adding explicitly NGOs to the list of possible complainants, adding a pop-up question on trade impacts for the UK complaints related to non-regression or significant divergences, improving some presentational aspects).
