European Union (EU) Exit: Changes to Data Download files

From 29th March 2019, if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the data download files available on the UK Trade Information website will change. All data, both EU and non-EU, will be contained within the Exports and Imports data download files named ‘SMKE19’ and ‘SMKI19’.

Please be aware this could impact any internal systems that you use for data analysis.

Supporting documentation available for data download files has been updated to reflect this change.
