South Korea has been asked by the USA to adopt their safety and emissions standards

by Adrian Hayden

In the idea of advancing a free-trade agreement, USA is asking South Korea to accept American automobile safety and emissions standards. The US is proposing that if the American-made automobiles comply with US regulatory standards, South Korea would have to allow the vehicles to be sold in that nation. We don’t exactly know if the provision is permanent or not.

The agreement was been inked by the two countries in 2007 but had not been implemented. Ron Kirk, US Trade Representative said that these changes are necessary so the agreement can pass the Congress.

Suh Jin Kyo, a director of research said that even if South Korea accepts the American safety rules, this “will be no big impact on demand for US automobiles.”
