A call for evidence from the Department for International Trade (DIT) to UK producers and product users.
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.
The call for evidence is at https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/call-for-evidence-to-identify-uk-interest-in-existing-eu-trade-remedy-measures - and can be found by searching online for ‘trade remedies call for evidence’.
The Trade Remedies team is happy to speak to companies about whether the call for evidence is relevant to them and how to respond to it. Please email them on firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a starting point, DIT recommend that businesses should review the list of existing EU trade remedies on the call for evidence website (called Annex B). Any business which produces, in the UK, goods which are on the list should respond to the call for evidence.
Closing Date: 12pm on 30 March 2018
