HM Revenue and Customs' (HMRC) Trade Statistics & Customs Analysis unit commissioned a project to review our bulk dataset file releases.
This consultation closed at 5pm on 2 September 2021.
The bulk dataset files currently hosted on www.uktradeinfo.com have been provided in the current format for over 20 years, whilst other trade data releases have all been recently updated and incremented to meet demand and legislative requirement (e.g. the interactive data table function and the www.uktradeinfo.com API). We have commissioned a project to evaluate the future requirement for bulk dataset files, to ensure they meet customer needs, whilst adhering to legal requirements regarding statistical disclosure control and protecting confidentiality.
All responses will be taken into consideration before a final decision is reached.
