Preparing for our Future UK Trade Policy

On 9 October the Government published its Trade White Paper setting out its future vision and framework for UK Trade, this paper provides UK Steel’s official response. Of particular importance to the steel sector is the establishment of a UK trade remedies regime; our key point’s in relation to this are:

  • Strong  support for the creation of an arm’s length body
  • The need of a more responsive system than that in place at and EU level
  • Concerns around the use of an unqualified economic interest test
  • Continued concerns about the application of the lesser duty rule
  • The need to transfer over all EU measures into the UK after Brexit and
  • Concern over the silence over how non-market economies would be treated within the new system
