As part of the backstop, the UK will establish a customs union with the EU (with the exception of trade in fishery and aquaculture products, which is expected to be the subject of a new agreement on fishing opportunities by 1 July 2020). The UK will comply with specific EU customs legislation, including with regard to third countries, and some harmonisation of legislation on taxation, the environment, labour law, state aid, competition and public undertakings/monopolies will continue, but without any obligation to follow the new EU legislation and ECJ case law. In order to create a level playing field, the UK undertakes not to back down on EU environmental protection, social and labour standards, state aid and competition, as well as state-owned enterprises in tax administration.
