The US administration has a process for domestic US steel consumers to apply for individual product exclusions from US s232 measures. The Department hosted a meeting on 5 June between US lawyers and UK steel and aluminium industry representatives to share information on the product exclusion process. We remain in regular dialogue with UK industry and will support them through this process where possible. Details of the process are set out on the US Department of Commerce website (link here ).
