The Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) is responsible for trade policy and legislation, including trade defence measures such as anti-dumping and countervailing duties.

International information

The European Union (EU) is a single market. Trade defence measures are co-ordinated across the EU, rather than separate measures being applied by each individual EU country. The European Commission takes responsibility for investigating complaints and agreeing trade defence measures which are then put in place by each EU country. You can read about trade defence measures on the Europa website. You can also contact the European Commission Trade Defence Helpdesk on Tel 00 32 22 98 78 73.

More broadly, trade defence measures are part of the international system of world trade overseen by the World Trade Organisation (WTO). Read about anti-dumping and subsidies on the WTO website.
