Second meeting of the EU DAG and the UK DAG under the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA)

The Domestic Advisory Groups (DAGs), set up under the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) to advise on the implementation of the agreement, held their second meeting on 6 November 2023, in London.

This meeting included a brief update from the UK and EU DAGs work since the last meeting in October 2022 as well as an outlook on future collaboration. Furthermore, the DAGs continued some relevant thematic focused discussions, in particular concerning regulatory cooperation and level playing field (including labour and environment & climate change), the Windsor Framework and trade in goods (including the Border Target Operating Model and regulatory cooperation).

Sir Oliver Heald, Chair of the UK Delegation to the EU-UK Parliamentary Partnership Assembly, participated in a fruitful exchange with members of both DAGs. Finally, in preparation for the Civil Society Forum taking place the day after, the DAGs held a discussion to agree on a Joint Statement.
