DIT has now published the provisional findings of this consultation. 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 provisional findings are that 42 of the EU’s existing trade remedies measures met the criteria for being maintained, pending a review by the independent Trade Remedies Authority (TRA), after the UK begins to operate its independent trade remedies framework. The remaining 72 measures did not meet the criteria and, subject to any further evidence, will not be maintained when the UK begins to operate its own independent trade remedies framework.
The Department for International Trade are now inviting anyone with an interest in this process to review the provisional findings and provide any further evidence – including any additional applications to maintain measures, to ensure that the Government has all the necessary information from affected UK businesses by Friday 24th August 2018.
A list of the goods covered by measures which did not meet the criteria for maintaining measures can be found here- Annex A.
