The Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) establishes a Partnership Council to oversee implementation of the Agreement. The Partnership Council is supported by a network of other committees, including the Trade Partnership Committee and 18 Specialised Committees. Together, these fora enable the UK and EU to discuss the effective implementation of our trade deal.

The TCA Specialised Committee on Social Security Coordination met on 6 July. The Specialised Committee on Fisheries is scheduled for 20 July. No other TCA Committee has yet met. The EU and UK have to agree meeting dates jointly. We are currently working with the EU to agree dates for other Specialised Committee meetings. The UK and EU co-chairs of each TCA Committee and Working Group determine their respective delegations to each meeting. Numbers in each delegation will vary between meetings, depending on what agenda items are scheduled for discussion.
