Have your say on potential remedies to tackle unfair trade.

Article Date: 16 March 2018

The UK, as part of it the process of leaving the EU, will be setting up a new Trade Remedies Authority. The TRA is trying to reach any UK business with a potential interest in existing measures taken by the EU against unfair trade. The Department of International Trade’s call for evidence was published to help identify that interest.

The EU currently has over 100 measures in place on imported products originating from 25 different non-EU countries, c.50 of which are relevant to UK industry. Once the UK leaves the EU, all EU measures will no longer be applicable, leaving the producers which are reliant on the measures vulnerable to the dumping of goods from overseas. If no application to maintain a measure is received, the measure will be terminated once the UK begins to operate its independent trade remedies framework.
