467The objective of Appendix 3 is to provide for the “do not reduce” obligation and the necessary provisions for the “dedicated mechanisms” provided for in Article 2, paragraph 1, of the Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland. This article stipulates that there must be no reduction in rights, guarantees and equal opportunities, as provided for in the “Rights, Protections and Equal Opportunity” chapter of the 1998 Belfast Agreement in Northern Ireland following the UK`s withdrawal from the EU, including protection from discrimination under the provisions of EU law in Appendix 1 of the Protocol. This must be implemented through “dedicated mechanisms.” (a) any aspect of this revocation, including (including) e) references in Sections 5 and 6 (Rights and Common Agricultural Policy) to the EU Common Tariff; The directly applicable EU provisions, exclusion of customs duties, EU rules and EU agricultural levies were in effect as they are applicable to the UK under Part 4 of the Withdrawal Agreement and (3) Any money received by a Crown Minister or a Government Department under the Withdrawal Agreement is transferred to the Consolidated Fund or , if the Ministry of Finance decides to do so, to the National Lending Fund. (a) any other provision of the agreement in question regarding this chapter, title, part or other provision, and 38. The Government considers that Article 55, paragraph 2 of the withdrawal agreement does not allow the United Kingdom to impose comparable duties on the British AfS for the three-year period following the end of the TP, whether in a disputed proceeding or not. Nor does it allow for changes to the three-year period itself. At present, the introduction of a stock exchange does not provide for the introduction of notifications to comparable rights holders that a UK AfS must be made available at the end of this three-year period. However, the IPO has started to reshape the electronic processing of applications and registrations in the future. It is possible that this can be taken into account in order to advance this work. At present, it is not possible to consider the reciprocity of the UK`s withdrawal from the EU, as the EUIPO [Note 5] guidelines on the implementation of the withdrawal agreement show. Representation issues do not fall within the scope of this current proposal. (c) replace Articles 12 and 13 of the Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland in the Withdrawal Agreement (implementation, application, control and application of the protocol and common provisions), (a) for “this combined withdrawal” , 24.
Many in favour of the EEA`s proposals to withdraw from the AfS rules have stated that they will lose their activities as a result of the UK`s withdrawal from the EU and the withdrawal of their ability to represent their clients before THE EUIPO. In fact, some have mentioned that this has already been done. Some felt that the proposal would help to level the playing field between their treatment at the time of the UK IPO and the EUIPO. Many also suggested that, given that UK officials are likely to be better trained in UK laws and practices than their non-British counterparts, this would also help to improve the way business is handled, which would improve service to their clients and possibly reduce the processing of cases at the time of the IPO.
