Response to the Consultation on the discontinuation of Asymmetries releases

This section is News


HM Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC) Trade Statistics & Customs Analysis unit has concluded a consultation on our series of Asymmetries releases and published a response.

HMRC ran a consultation between 5th May and 8th June 2021 in which we proposed to discontinue our series of releases on Trade in Goods Asymmetries.


Based on the feedback received we have decided not to discontinue the Asymmetries releases, but we will be reducing the size of any accompanying commentary to focus more on basic summaries and headlines.
