If the UK leaves the European Union without an agreement, the EU will be required to apply its MFN tariff regime to all UK exports, in compliance to WTO regulations. At the moment, the EU has not given any indication that it will modify its MFN tariff regime as a consequence of the UK leaving the EU without any agreement.

The highest EU MFN tariff lines will be on dairy products, meat, sugar, fruits and vegetables. Further information on all the current EU’s MFN tariff rates can be found at the following website:
