Signed UK trade agreements transitioned from the EU

A list of the trade and mutual recognition agreements the UK has signed with non-EU countries.

The UK has signed continuity trade agreements with non-EU countries so that trade can continue with minimal disruption after the UK leaves the EU.

These countries account for 63% of trade currently covered by EU agreements for which the UK is seeking continuity.

The agreements have replicated the EU trade agreements as far as possible. However, there may be some changes to ensure that new agreements work for both countries.

When the UK signs further agreements this page will be updated.

You can find the text of these agreements by clicking on the country below.
