The institutional framework of the UK/EU Trade and Cooperation agreement
The Committee is looking into the role, responsibilities and powers of the new joint UK/EU bodies established by the UK/EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA), and the approach taken by the UK Government and the EU to representing their interests within them. We will look to:
determine the powers and responsibilities of the individual elements of the TCA’s institutional framework and identify the most important formal powers that these bodies have (e.g. to make specified amendments or supplementary changes to the TCA);
describe the transparency requirements around the joint UK/EU bodies as set out in the TCA;
assess the UK and EU’s respective approaches to representing their interests in the joint bodies; and
consider how the work of these joint bodies may affect the operation of the Northern Ireland Protocol.
