Have your say on EU trade remedies

30 July 2018


Businesses invited to review and provide further relevant information

Earlier this year, the Department for International Trade (DIT) issued a call for evidence aimed to identify which EU trade remedy measures matter to the UK, in order to determine which measures to maintain as the UK leaves the European Union.

DIT has now published the provisional findings of this call for evidence and there is an opportunity for businesses to review the findings and provide further relevant information.

Provisional findings

The provisional findings explain which existing EU anti-dumping or anti-subsidy measures met the Government’s criteria for being maintained when the UK begins to operate an independent trade remedies framework. The ones that did not meet the criteria will not be maintained when the UK begins to operate an independent trade remedies framework. All maintained measures will be reviewed to ensure they are suitable for the UK’s market.

Review the findings

DIT are now inviting anyone with an interest to review these provisional findings and provide any further evidence which could affect their decisions. This includes providing an application to maintain measures covering products produced in the UK, if one was not provided earlier.

Anyone wishing to provide further information or an application should look at the original call for evidence, which explains what information is needed. The Government will announce the conclusions of the call for evidence by the end of the year.

Responses to the provisional findings of the call for evidence, including applications to maintain measures and submissions of evidence should be emailed to traderemedies@trade.gov.uk by 12pm on 24 August 2018.
