How cookies are used on the Trade Tariff

This cookies policy is an additional policy that applies to the Trade Tariff service. The main GOV.UK cookies policy also applies.

Remembering how collapsible lists are shown

Finding a commodity in the Trade Tariff may involve you browsing a list of items that can be expanded or collapsed. If you choose to expand or collapse all items, we’ll save a cookie that lets us know your preference so we can display items in the same way the next time you visit the page.
