Exporting to Dominican Republic after Brexit if there's no deal

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

Trade agreement

The UK has signed an agreement with CARIFORUM states, including the Dominican Republic.

The agreement maintains the effects of the EU-CARIFORUM 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 CARIFORUM states, trade could continue with minimal changes to tariffs and quotas when the UK leaves the EU.

Managing risk

Controlled goods

The export licensing regulations for controlled goods will be affected.

Controlled goods include:

  • military items
  • dual-use items (items with both civil and military uses)
