You can look at the link if you want but I just posted a bit.

Norway, Switzerland and EU laws



So if you want to export toasters to Germany you need to comply with their rules, the same as any other country. I have a feeling that we still can't export beef to the US. Both Switzerland and Norway want to have access to the EU but don't want to be part of the club. For Norway it may be because of the ridiculous fishing policy for Switzerland it may have to do with too much scrutiny of the banking system.

Edited to add. Just looked it up and although red meat can be exported to the US it seems that not a lot of it is going there.

Strong year for UK meat exports - AHDB Beef & Lamb
The primary reason the Norwegians give the EU a wide berth is that they are far too sensible to allow either the Commission or the French (much the same thing) anywhere near their oil wealth.

Shame we squandered ours
 
Why should there be a more forensic dissection of the decision to leave than there was of the decision to remain in 1975?
I voted NO in 1975, it was a vote about joining the EEC, nothing about the EU. In effect we were already in as 'grocer Heath' had already done the dirty a couple of years earlier. We then got stuffed with a load of bureaucratic shite. My opinion has not changed, out we should go, pay them nothing, in fact they should be paying us. Because we are one of the main contributors to the EU slush fund they are scared shitless about us going, this why we get all the scaremongering from the remoaner remaniacs, funded by interfering foreigners like George Soros and traitors like Blair and Mandelson. Rant over, the pub beckons for warm flat beer and a gammon sandwich.

We have scqullions of cubic meters of gas to be fraked.
And that's going to work out really well, innit? Notwithstanding that the Septics have been at the fracking lark for a solid decade now and the industry has yet to make a profit, even with the present very high oil-price level.

What the frackers are banking on is UK gobment subsidies. It's just another Capitalist scam to gain access to taxpayer dollaz.

They won't meet rules of origin requirements.

So bye bye Toyota, JLR, Honda etc etc etc
Like thats going to make a difference

Currently all cars have a certificate of conformity - this is an EU standard and so if you wish to Transfer your registration to another country its a really simple task as the paperwork is recognised by all

Well thats as long as you dont actually try to do it

Non Mosnsieur this EU standard approved document is not written in French - you must have it translated (by a certified translator etc) or obtain the certificate (or for older cars a letter of confirmation*) in french from the manufacturer - actually that wont do it has to be from a local French distributor so they can examine it etc.

So I dont see what difference having a car built in the UK today with an EU standard certificate the ******* frogs wont accept is going to make to me buying a UK made car - sold in Europe**- without an EU certificate of conformity.


*Fair play on this one older cars dont have a certificate - but the letter of conformitie is a standard but yet again only acceptable in French
**Special imports are a nause regardless

When the oil price goes up, the fracking will start again, it's a simple question of economics. It's surprising to see you arguing against the re-establishment of an indigenous extractive industry which localises energy supplies.

If you want to re-generate the north, fracking, together with the related processing industries it enables, is the way to do it.

You don't have talk some poo,

So all Hondas sold in France, (not many BTW), are built in EUtopia?

No they are not, Honda builds models globally and imports them to the sales market.
CRV's, UK, Japan or Canada, HR-V's, UK or Japan, Jazz, UK, Thailand or Japan, Civics in the UK.

What about fisheries? In late 2009 I was sat in a bar in Turkey talking to a Norwegian, and he mentioned having a vote on possible EU membership.. I suggested voting no would be better in terms of resources.

Really? When I first came to Spain I had an 8 year old Vauxhall Zafira. I had no idea what a certificate of conformity was but Vauxhall provided me with one in 4 different languages (including French) with just my VIN number.
Accepted by trafico in Alicante (the epitome of jobsworth bureaucracy) with no hesitation.

That has nothing to do with rules of origin

When have socialists ever cared about the working class?

It's all part of the equation but it's oil and gas that's the biggest prize.

The French prefecture is designed to make any simple task impossible
Ive seen French people struggle to register a French car in their name
Whilst your lot may be the epitome of Jobsworth the prefecture aspires to the title of pinacle of workshy unhelpful cretins.

Opens at 9 - dont bother trying before 9.30 after 11.15 forget it to close to Lunch etc
