This document provides information on the common understanding reached on the rights of EU27 and UK citizens’ post-Brexit as set out in the Joint Report from the negotiators under Article 50 TEU on the UK’s orderly withdrawal from the EU. Should the European Council (Article 50) consider on 15 December that sufficient progress has been made in the negotiations, the Withdrawal Agreement based on Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union – on which citizens will base their rights – should be drafted on the basis of the Joint Report and the outcome of the negotiations on other separation issues. This present document interprets the Joint Report for information purposes only and should not be understood as the final text of the Withdrawal Agreement.
