EU Overseas Trade Statistics: Announcement of Revisions to Historical Data18 Jun 2013

Following routine quality assurance and checking procedures, Trade Statistics has identified some errors in declarations made by traders.

A processing error caused the double counting of some oil dispatches in December 2011. The total amount of double counting, which affected two EU export partner countries, was £82.3 million and fell under one commodity code.

  • 27090090 - Petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude (excl. natural gas condensates)

Therefore, in this release, £41.5 million of dispatch trade has been deleted from Belgium and £40.8 million from the Netherlands.

These revisions will be included in the interactive tables as soon as possible. Changes to the Regional Trade Statistics will be made at a later date.
