Use this pattern to tell users about changes to the UK Trade Tariff, Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF), Customs Declaration Service (CDS) and monthly trade euro rate.

When not to use

Do not update a tariff stop press notice after it’s been published, unless it’s to correct a typo. A new one must be issued.
