Product safety is among the areas targeted in a wide-ranging report from the UK government titled The Benefits of Brexit. The document (bit.ly/33rTMni) explains:

"We will consult this year on changes to the EU derived framework for product safety, ensuring the UK approach to product regulation is proportionate, innovative and forward – looking. It will be controlled by UK law makers and protect consumers from unsafe goods."

Meanwhile, the report's discussion of transportation and supply chain challenges includes this goal:

"We will continue to work closely with industry to ensure that the regulatory environment facilitates the optimal use of existing transport infrastructure. Transport is a key enabler of international and domestic trade and we will provide the right balance between the free flow of goods and environmental and safety considerations."
