The UK’s independent trade preference scheme will, as a minimum, provide the same level of access as the current EU trade preference scheme. The countries that will receive duty free quota free access are those listed in Part 2 of Schedule 3 of the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Act, and the other eligible developing countries that will be granted preferences are those listed in Part 3 of that Schedule.
