If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the Temporary Tariff schedule will apply to UK imports. This policy seeks to balance the impact on consumers from price rises and on producers from exposure to global competition. More information is available on gov.uk.

Separately, DIT is also launching a ‘Market Access Service’, through which businesses can submit reports of trade barriers they face in overseas markets. This reporting service will be made available on great.gov.uk in due course.
