Following the publication of UK trade: September 2021 an error was identified. This error occurred due to an unintentional duplication of a small number of figures during our monthly processing.
This has resulted in a discrepancy of £1.1 billion in exports to the Netherlands in September 2021 and a smaller discrepancy of £24.6 million in exports to Greece in July 2021. The impact is spread across a range of products.
This does not impact any of the key points and messages in this release.
In line with our published National Accounts revisions policy, we will revise these figures in our January 2022 monthly trade publication.
This cause of this error has been investigated and measures have been taken to minimise the risk of similar errors in future.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
