It is the single point of contact for businesses and traders with questions about exporting to Ukraine, Russia or Belarus. 

No matter the size of your business, how much you export or where in the UK you are based, DIT indicate that businesses can use the service to get answers to their questions. It can also help businesses navigate other government services, so they can find further support about trading with Europe or other countries, such as DIT’s International Trade Advisers and the Export Academy.

DIT will continue to work with businesses and business representative groups in all parts of the UK, to help make the service as useful as possible for businesses at every stage of their exporting journey.
