As continuity agreements seek to replicate the effects of the existing of EU agreements, we do not publish impact assessments alongside these agreements.

The volume of trade impacted varies between different trading partners. Our Parliamentary Reports published alongside signed agreements contain detailed information about the volume of trade, composition of imports and exports, and wider economic impact for each agreement.

We will continue to voluntarily lay these Parliamentary Reports, with Explanatory Memoranda, alongside agreements.
