CONSIDERING that the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the Union should be without prejudice to the rights and obligations of the Republic of Cyprus under Union law or to the rights and obligations of the parties to the founding Treaty, international agreements to which the Union is a party and international agreements concluded by the Member States on behalf of the Union, Exchanges of letters of 30 March and 19 April 1977, as amended by the exchange of letters of 8 No 1989 and 10 January 1990 on waiving reimbursement of the costs of benefits in kind, administrative checks and medical examinations 2. After notification by the United Kingdom and the Union of the date of entry into force of the agreements referred to in paragraph 1 of this Article, the Joint Committee established by Article 164 (hereinafter referred to as `the Joint Committee`) shall determine the date from which the provisions of this Title shall apply to nationals of Iceland and the Principality of Liechtenstein; the Kingdom of Norway and, where applicable, the Swiss Confederation. 1. The United Kingdom shall ensure that its withdrawal from the Union does not entail a reduction in rights, guarantees or equal opportunities in accordance with The 1998 Title entitled `Rights, Guarantees and Equal Opportunities`, including in the area of protection against discrimination enshrined in the provisions of Union law listed in Annex 1 to this Protocol; and implements this paragraph through special mechanisms. The Union shall treat data and information received from the United Kingdom before the end of the transition period or received after the end of the transition period on the basis of this Agreement in a different manner from data and information received from a Member State, solely because the United Kingdom has withdrawn from the Union. 5. The suspension of commitments shall be temporary and shall apply only until measures which prove to be inconsistent with the provisions of this Agreement have been withdrawn or modified in order to comply with the provisions of this Agreement or until the Union and the United Kingdom have agreed to settle the dispute otherwise. The first subparagraph shall not apply where protection in the Union results from international agreements to which the Union is a party. NOTING that the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the Union therefore poses significant challenges for the maintenance and development of North-South cooperation, the Communication clarifies the provisions that the complainant intends to suspend. .
