Changes to the Overseas Trade Statistics bulk dataset files
The current OTS bulk datasets will be replaced by a single data file for each flow.
On 11 March 2022, the way HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) publishes the Overseas Trade Statistics (OTS) bulk dataset files will be changing.
To ensure published trade data is relevant and easily accessible, as well as considering feedback from our recent consultation, the current OTS bulk datasets will be replaced by a single data file for each flow (Imports and Exports).
The information included in each new single data will be changing, and a full technical specification document is available to support understanding of how to interpret these new data files.
