The United Kingdom (UK) of Great Britain and Northern Ireland comprises England, Scotland and Wales (Great Britain) and Northern Ireland.
Currently, the UK is a member of the European Union (EU) and is subject to EU trade regulatory requirements. However, on the 23 June 2016, the UK held a referendum to answer the question: "should the UK remain a member of the EU, or leave the EU?".
By a margin of 51.9 per cent to 48.1 per cent, the UK voted to leave the EU (commonly referred to as 'Brexit').
Find out more information about the progress of this on the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's (DFAT) website.
