The Future of Road Transport Emissions Regulation in the UK after Brexit

FIA Foundation

October 2018

A report, written for the FIA Foundation by Aether, shows that potential changes to the vehicle emissions regime after Brexit could pose real risks to public health, as well as a loss of access to valuable EU markets for the £4.9bn UK motor industry.

The report, The Future of Road Transport Emissions Regulation in the UK after Brexit, launched on 12 October, examines some potential regulation scenarios and their impact on a post-Brexit Britain. It concludes that the best outcome for public health, the environment and the UK automotive industry, is for the UK to take a strong leadership position in developing new emissions control approaches. However, this position needs to go beyond Ministerial statements and be embedded in legislation.
