Is it true to say that the Chequers proposal will preclude importing goods from outside the EU that do not meet EU standards?

IIUC, the Chequers agreement proposes that a post-Brexit UK continues with regulatory alignment for goods with the EU.

Is it true to say that this means the UK will then be unable to permit the import of goods that do not meet EU regulations?

If so, might this impact the UK’s ability to negotiate favourable terms of trade with other countries who wish to export to the UK?
