Mr Rees-Mogg said they are “the delight of protectionists and should be removed where possible”.

From next year, 全部 EU goods heading to the UK must be certified with a UKCA regulatory mark.

Such non-tariff barriers can add costs of 20 per cent on imported goods.

Victoria Hewson, author of the Institute of Economic Affairs report, said its proposals would “bolster the UK’s status as a free trading nation”.

她说: “The UK has an opportunity to lead the world with a radical trade policy of recognising regulations, without requiring reciprocity, starting with the EU.

“This will transform the UK’s trade policy, ensuring goods which emulate our own standards are traded freely into the UK without unnecessary regulatory barriers.
