As a member of the EU, the UK has supported the Commission’s proposal to revise its anti-dumping methodology, while clearly advocating that any amendments to the regulations must be applied in a way which is WTO compliant. Any changes to the EU’s methodology must be fair, balanced and compatible with WTO requirements.
On leaving the EU, we will operate our own trade policy. We will develop a WTO compliant trade remedies regime that will enable us to tackle significant market distortions. Our regime will provide UK industries, including steel, with protection against unfair and injurious trade practices.
