The majority of safety standards applied by the EU for new road vehicles are those agreed under the international Agreements of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). As a contracting party to the UNECE agreement, the UK will continue to accept these same regulations in the event of a no deal and shall continue to take a leading role in their development to ensure the highest levels of safety continue to apply.
