Overseas Trade Statistics bulk dataset files update
The current OTS bulk datasets have been replaced by a single data file for each flow.
From 11 March 2022, the way HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) publishes Overseas Trade Statistics (OTS) bulk dataset files is changing.
To ensure published trade data is relevant and easily accessible, as well as considering feedback from our recent consultation, the previous OTS bulk datasets have been replaced by a single data file for each flow (Imports and Exports).
The information included in each new single data has also changed, and a full technical specification document is available to support understanding of how to interpret these new data files.
The January 2022 datasets are available from the Bulk dataset page on uktradeinfo.
