1. Who should read this?

This paper should be read by all users of the United Kingdom (UK) Overseas Trade Statistics (OTS) and Regional Trade Statistics (RTS). It is the statement of how HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) ensures the quality of Trade Statistics outputs.

2. Introduction The Government Statistical Service (GSS) guidance on quality measurement and reporting, states that organisations producing statistics must show evidence of the quality of outputs by reporting against the nine ESS (European Statistical System) quality dimensions and principles.

Context for the quality report.

The Overseas Trade Statistics (OTS) is a detailed National Statistics dataset covering the UK's trade in goods at partner country and product level. They are published monthly and provide aggregated and detailed data for over 9,000 commodities and 250 partner countries. The OTS is compiled from data collected via the Intrastat survey (EU trade) and customs declarations non-EU).

The Regional Trade Statistics (RTS) is a National Statistics dataset (derived from the OTS) which is published quarterly. This details international trade conducted from the nine regions of England plus Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. This uses postcode address and VAT registration details of businesses to allocate trade to a region. Note: it does not detail international trade by place of departure or arrival of the goods in the UK.

Both of these statistics are published by HMRC via its statistical website www.uktradeinfo.com.

3. The Quality Dimensions - Assessment The degree to which the statistical product meets user needs in both Relevance coverage and content.

The statistical methods used to produce the OTS are designed to deliver statistical data sets which meet the coverage, timeliness and quality requirements set out in European legislation and Internationally agreed standards. As the RTS is derived from the OTS it retains these characteristics.

Trade-offs are the extent to which different aspects of quality are Trade-offs balanced against each other.

between Output Quality Components The trade statistics are produced and released to strict timetables, formulated to satisfy legislative and ONS requirements. There is a trade-off in publishing the data in a timely fashion, and ensuring it is as complete and accurate as possible, minimising revisions. As a result there may be minor inaccuracies in the first set of published provisional statistics due to erroneously submitted or incomplete data. Consequently there is a scheduled revision process that
