Boris Johnson warned the EU that Britain will not follow any of its rules in a future trade deal.
In a speech on Monday, the prime minister will set out his desire for a loose relationship with Brussels.
EU figures have said that Britain must sign up its rules in order to secure high levels of market access.
However, Johnson will say "it is vital to stress" that Britain will not sign up to them under any circumstances.
The prime minister will warn Brussels that Britain will walk away without a trade deal if necessary.
