Guidance

Exporting to Trinidad and Tobago after Brexit if there’s no deal

Guidance explaining changes for UK exporters to Trinidad and Tobago 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.

Trade agreement

The UK has signed an agreement with CARIFORUM states, including Trinidad and Tobago.

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.

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)
  • firearms
