Details of the published texts and the Agreement in principle.

The agreement in principle

Texts of the agreement

In view of the Commission's transparency policy, the Commission is publishing the texts of the EU-Mexico Agreement in principle announced on 21 April 2018.

The texts are published for information purposes only and may undergo further modifications including as a result of the process of legal revision. However, in view of the growing public interest in the negotiations, the texts are published at this stage of the negotiations for information purposes. These texts are without prejudice to the final outcome of the agreement between the EU and Mexico.

The texts will be final upon signature. The agreement will become binding on the Parties under international law only after completion by each Party of its internal legal procedures necessary for the entry into force of the Agreement (or its provisional application).
