Ministers will also start preparations of the European Council (Article 50) of December, by examining the annotated draft agenda for the summit.

Relocation of the two EU agencies

In the margins of the General Affairs Council (Article 50), EU27 ministers will vote on the relocation of the two EU agencies currently located in the UK: the European Medicines Agency and the European Banking Authority.
