The Government has a robust process in place to fact-check all guidance it publishes,

including information relevant for preparing for Brexit. Content that is created by

departments is fact-checked by relevant experts within that department.

All content relating to Brexit is underpinned by policy decisions taken at a departmental

level and drafted with the support of content editors. A dedicated team will ensure

GOV.UK Brexit content continues to meet users’ needs on an ongoing basis.
