In the event that the UK leaves the EU with no deal, the Government’s priority is to provide continuity for UK industry. Our transition policy is therefore to ensure UK industry retains trade remedy protections on exit, and so we are committed to carrying across existing measures where there is a UK interest, and then reviewing them to make them UK specific. We will follow this approach for any definitive safeguard measures that are in place on exit, as well as for existing anti-dumping and anti-subsidy measures.
