The United Kingdom considers this notification to be a rectification of its concessions and commitments under the WTO, on the grounds that the schedule replicates, as far as possible, the UK's WTO concessions and commitments as an EU member. WTO members now have 45 days to review the schedule, as outlined in the "Procedures for the certification of rectifications or improvements to schedules of specific commitments". If no objections are made by the end of this period, the UK's services schedule will be considered to be certified. The UK will continue to trade on current EU terms while the separate EU withdrawal negotiating process between the UK and the EU is ongoing.
