UK to align auto regulations with EU post Brexit: health minister

Britain will align its regulations with the European Union’s in some areas, such as the automotive sector, after it leaves the bloc in 2019, health minister Jeremy Hunt said on Friday.

Hunt also told BBC radio there was no possibility of the government changing its position on leaving the customs union after Brexit.

“There will be areas and sectors of industry where we agree to align our regulations with European regulations, the automotive industry is perhaps an obvious example because of supply chains that are integrated, but it will be on a voluntary basis,” he told the BBC.
