Guidance explaining changes for UK exporters to Papua New Guinea if we leave the EU with no deal.
Leaving the EU with a deal remains the UK government’s top priority. This has not changed. However, the government is continuing with no deal preparations to ensure the country is prepared for every eventuality.
The UK has signed an agreement with Pacific states, including Papua New Guinea.
The agreement maintains the effects of the EU-Pacific states agreement and could ensure that trade continues with minimal disruption if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
See the UK-Pacific agreement.
Tariffs and quotas
Because the UK has signed an agreement with Pacific states, trade could continue with minor changes to tariffs and quotas when the UK leaves the EU.
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)
Find out how export licensing for controlled goods will change.
