The government has set out two options for the UK’s future customs relationship with the EU: a ‘new customs partnership’ and a ‘highly streamlined customs arrangement.’

The exact details of our future customs arrangements are subject to negotiation. The government has confirmed that Parliament will be presented with the appropriate analysis to make an informed decision when the meaningful vote on the final deal takes place.

When determining policy, the government carefully considers the impact of its decisions on those sharing protected characteristics in line with both its legal obligations and with its strong commitment to promoting fairness.
