The Patriarchate of Constantinople can provide autocephaly to the church without any agreement.
Such a decision was made on September 2 at the Bishops’ Council of Constantinople Church, which was held in Istanbul, according to Hromdaske.

The Council considered the question of how much the Church of Constantinople was authorized without the consent of other churches to grant autonomy, autocephaly to the church asking for it.

The Bishops’ Cathedral of Constantinople Church began on September 1 and lasts until the 3rd day. The main issue during the Cathedral was the provision to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of autocephaly.

It is expected that, after consultation with bishops from all over the world, the Constantinople Patriarchate may finally determine the timing for tomos.
