The Department for International Trade (DIT) has not produced, or is preparing, any Impact Assessments on the UK leaving the EU. Analysis on the UK’s exit from the EU falls under the remit of the Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU), which is leading the Government’s ongoing programme of analytical work.

DIT has produced Impact Assessments to accompany the Trade Bill, as is typical prior to introducing specific legislation to Parliament.
