Brexit and Transport

Brexit and Transport

Whether on road, rail, across seas or through the air, transport policy is a shared competency between the European Union (EU) and EU Member States, and within the UK many aspects of transport policy are devolved from UK Government to national devolved administrations and, within England, to regional administrations such as The London Assembly.

The EU’s Common Transport Policy (CTP) has underpinned much of the EU legislation and regulations in this field. Policy developments emerging from this have included the development of safety standards for transportation, such as Air Traffic Control, the promotion of passengers’ rights, and emissions regulations. With the UK playing a leading role in the development of standards within the European Union, there is an opportunity for the UK to maintain, and advance, the regulations and safety standards currently within the statute book post Brexit. How the UK’s transport network will interact with that of the EU going forward will be a crucial aspect of the negotiation process.

EU Regulations (EC 443/2009 and EC 520/2011) deliver reductions in CO2 emissions from new cars and vans sold into the single market. This works by setting fleet averaged targets for manufacturers. (Source: Automotive Sector Report, Department for Exiting the European Union)
