Rules

In this section, please consider only the single market relationship between the UK and EU, and not the customs union.

* 1. For your sector, how important is "alignment" between the UK and the EU rules?

* 2. How important do you think continued UK influence over EU rules is?

* 3. If faced with a hypothetical either/or choice between "frictionless access to the EU" and "influence over EU rules", which would you opt for?

* 4. At the moment, what are the EU regulations and directives that you believe the UK Government should stay aligned with? What do those rules mean for businesses and why is alignment important? (Please be as specific as possible, and provide any evidence you have to support this - for example, surveys or examples) 

* 5. At the moment, what are the EU regulations and directives that you believe the UK Government should diverge from? What do those rules mean for your business and why is divergence important? (Please be as specific as possible, and provide any evidence you have to support this - for example, surveys or examples) 

* 6. If the UK and EU agreed a "CETA-like" deal, with all the same rules and recognition as in the Canadian model, please describe what that would look like for your business. (200-300 words would be ideal) 

* 7. If the UK and EU failed to agree a deal, please describe what that would look like for your business. (200-300 words would be ideal) 

* 8. In 150 words or less, please describe what you are seeking from the new regulatory relationship between the UK and the EU. 

* 9. Are there any legislative or regulatory steps that the UK could take independently to provide you with greater certainty?
