@moonbus saidErr, yes we have.
No, you haven't. If you still want to sell your goods and services to EU countries, you have to abide by THEIR rules and safety/environmental/transport regulations. The target country's rules apply, not the supplier's. The big difference is that, before, you had a vote in what those rules would be, and now you don't.
Seeking to comply with EU regs on goods is our choice in order to trade. Same way we will comply with Japan’s regs in order to trade. Japan has some of the toughest clinical regs for medical devices in the world and everyone complies. It’s a choice.
We are no longer part of the EU but we still want to trade. I think you pretending not to be able to differentiate that obvious nuance is almost as silly as duchess64 comparing a waitress earning tips to a freelance writer writing sob-stories to the guardian.
