The Trade Remedies Investigations Directorate (TRID) initiated a review of the steel safeguard measure on 1st October 2020.

We anticipate that TRID – which will become the Trade Remedies Authority (TRA) on 1st June – will complete the review in time for a decision by my Rt Hon. Friend the Secretary of State for International Trade before the measure expires on 30th June.
