Erroneous early publication of UK Overseas Trade Statistics10 Jun 2013

The April 2013 Overseas Trade Statistics for UK trade with non-EU countries was due to be published at 09:30 on Friday 7 June 2013. The underlying detailed data related to the release was incorrectly published to HMRC’s trade statistics website www.uktradeinfo.com at 09:30 on Thursday 6 June 2013. The statistical release itself (including commentary and aggregated data tables) was not published.

The erroneous publication was identified and withdrawn at 14:35 on Thursday 6 June 2013. Investigations indicate that one user may have accessed the underlying data during this period.

The correct release of the April 2013 Overseas Trade Statistics for UK trade with non-EU countries, subsequently occurred at 09:30 on Friday 6 June 2013.

HMRC would like to apologise to all users for any confusion that may have arisen from this error.

A breach report has been submitted to the National Statistician’s Office and will be published in due course with a further update to this announcement.
