This answer is a correction from the original answer.

In the event of the UK leaving the EU without a deal, on exit all ‘harmonised standards’ that gave a presumption of conformity to EU requirements will be cited as ‘designated standards’ and will give rise to a presumption of conformity to the relevant requirements in the UK body of retained EU law, as amended. Details of all ‘designated’ standards will be provided on the website.

A register of UK approved bodies and the conformity assessment activities for which they have been approved will be made available via the website.

Original answer

It has not proved possible to respond to this question in the time available before Prorogation. I will correspond directly with my noble Friend.
