Call for evidence to identify UK interest in existing EU trade remedy measures

Posted: 8th January 2018

DIT is preparing a UK trade remedies framework in readiness for the UK leaving the EU.

In support of this, the call for evidence aims to identify which UK businesses produce goods currently subject to anti-dumping or anti-subsidy measures, or to an on-going investigation related to these.

It asks those businesses to state whether they support, are neutral to, or oppose the maintaining of those measures when the UK begins to operate its independent trade remedy framework. It asks for data about those businesses’ production and sales, and total UK production and sales, to enable us to assess whether the applications meet the required criteria and can be maintained.

If a measure does not receive an application to be maintained, or does not meet the required criteria, it will be terminated once the UK begins to operate its independent trade remedy framework.
