In sight of the Brexit Switzerland has signed an agreement on the street transport with the United Kingdom

The scope is of being able to apply without interruptions the enforced norms also after the escape of the United Kingdom from the EU

In sight of the escape of the United Kingdom from the European Union the president of the Helvetic Confederation, Ueli Maurer, has signed an agreement in topic of assurances with the chancellor of the Chessboards British Philip Hammond and an agreement on the street transport with the British ambassadress Jane Owen. The two understandings have been sign with the scope to assure of being able to apply without interruptions the enforced norms in these withins also after the escape of the United Kingdom from the EU. To legal level, in fact, the relations between Switzerland and the United Kingdom are based among other things on the existing bilateral agreements between Switzerland and the EU and with its escape from the EU such agreements will not be more applicable to the United Kingdom.

Thanks to the agreement between Switzerland and the United Kingdom on the street transport, for the transport of goods on the road they will be able to be completed travels between the two States or still to be journeyed to you without special permissions. Moreover the agreement guarantees the mutual access for the transport of goods and passengers on the road let alone to maintain the administrative burdens limited. Instead the cabotage (the national transport of goods and passengers on the territory of the other State) will continue not to be admitted. The agreement will send back moreover to the national right of both the States: for Switzerland, for example, the night and Sunday and the limit of 40 tons previewed for the trucks vigeranno the circular prohibition.

Contrarily to the agreement on the terrestrial transports between Switzerland and the EU, the agreement which signed from the Helvetic Confederation with the United Kingdom will not discipline to more the rail shipment, but only that street one as the rail shipment between the two nations is regulated in sufficiently exaustive way in the international agreements.

The effectiveness of the two new agreements between Bern and London will depend on the evolution of the situation between United Kingdom and EU: in case of tidy escape of the United Kingdom from the EU, the bilateral agreements between Switzerland and the EU the new agreements would continue to apply themselves also to the United Kingdom and they would only take effect to expiring of the period of transition; in case of escape not ordered of the United Kingdom from the EU, the two new agreements between Switzerland and 30 the United Kingdom they would take effect next March since beginning from such date the agreements between Switzerland and the EU would not be more applicable in the bilateral relations between Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
