The Department of International Trade (DIT) was created as a result of the UK’s decision to leave the European Union. All the work carried out by the Department contributes to supporting the government to deliver Brexit. Individual roles are not classified according to particular EU Exit scenarios, including leaving without a deal.

Several teams within DIT have reprioritised their activity where necessary to make preparations for the UK leaving the EU without a deal.
