We empower organisations and equip individuals with the expertise to trade effectively, sustainably and competitively

The Institute of Export & International Trade was established in 1935 to support UK businesses in growing their international markets and trade. The Institute is the leading association of exporters and importers. We provide education and training to professionalise the UK’s international traders.

As a partner with governments, we deliver programmes in the UK and internationally, and are evangelists for global standards.

The Institute co-partners in running the online Customs Academy, the world’s first training platform dedicated to customs skills and developed at the request of HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).
