    If using specific facts contained in this release please check the information is still current as it is subject to revision on a monthly basis (see below).
    Although care is taken when processing and analysing the business returns that make up the OTS, the detail collected is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large-scale recording system. While the data published have been checked as far as is practicable, they should be regarded as approximate and not necessarily accurate to the last whole number shown in the tables. They are fit to be used for purposes such as trend analysis and for comparing the relative magnitude of components.
    You can find further detail regarding data quality on our Quality Assurance page, and details of our revision and data suppression policies, and full OTS methodology in the Policies and Methodologies area.
     
    The relationship between OTS data, the UK Balance of Payments and Eurostat’s publication of EU international trade [insert hyperlink to new Related Data page….] is explained in the User Support area, which also links to other trade-in-goods data and customer information, including 'The User Story' a presentation on how OTS data is used.
