Guidance

Exporting to Colombia after Brexit if there’s no deal

Guidance explaining changes for UK exporters to Colombia if we leave the EU with no deal.

Trade agreement

The UK has signed an agreement with Andean countries, including Colombia.

The agreement maintains the effects of the EU-Andean countries agreement and could ensure that trade continues with minimal disruption if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

Tariffs and quotas

Because the UK has signed an agreement with Andean countries, trade could continue with minimal changes to tariffs and quotas when the UK leaves the EU.
