Last week, the Foreign Secretary, James Cleverly, and Vice President to the European Commission, Maroš Šefčovič, met to sign off the Windsor Framework at the Withdrawal Agreement Joint Committee in London.
The meeting follows the vote in the House of Commons, where MPs supported legislation on the Stormont Brake. The Brake introduces a democratic safeguard that will give Northern Ireland institutions, once restored, a role in the decision on whether significant new goods rules should apply in Northern Ireland.
The EU also formally agreed to the key elements of the Windsor Framework during a Council of the EU.
