Article 5 of the WTO Agreement on Anti-Dumping sets out that investigations should normally be concluded within 12 months, and must not take longer than 18 months. The same rules apply in respect of subsidy investigations.

We have been clear that the TRA will be expected to comply with WTO rules; this includes in respect of timeframes where relevant.
