The UK has a strong track record in developing design and civil engineering standards, both at home and abroad. We have been at the forefront of improving standards, with those that originated from our own national bodies being adopted the world over in a wide range of sectors. We will continue to work with other European countries, and globally, to drive new standards after we leave the EU.
