Answered on

The Department for International Trade (DIT) has published clear, accurate, and up-to-date information on every signed continuity agreement to give businesses the support they need to enter new markets across the globe. This includes information on the rules of origin provisions within those agreements.

DIT has also created free-to-use online tools (‘Trade with the UK’ and ‘Check How to Export Goods’) so that businesses can access product-specific and country-specific information on tariffs and regulations that currently apply to UK trade in goods.

These tools provide information for traders on updated rules of origin arising from continuity trade agreements taking effect after the transition period and are regularly updated to reflect any changes.
