New UK Customs Website

Posted on: 21/09/2012

As of October 2012, the Businesslink.gov.uk website (including export control related content) will be replaced by a new cross-government website - called GOV.UK. You can try out the new website here and make comments back to HMRC (see below) and us at LINKEDIN CUSTOMS 2013

To familiarise yourself with the new website (including accessing export control content) you can log in to  the 'beta' test at http://www.gov.uk now.

Your feedback about the new site is very important. Therefore, if you have any queries, comments or concerns before the launch in October please do contact: Edwina Osborne at mailto:edwina.osborne@bis.gsi.gov.uk.

Your views will be very helpful and will be passed on to the Government Digital Service (GDS) who are leading the website project and who will continue to improve the site before and after launch.
