The UK adjusts the implementation of the safeguard measures for imported steel products

On July 1, 2022, the WTO Safeguards Committee published the Safeguards Notice submitted to it by the UK delegation on June 23, 2022. The UK Secretary of State for International Trade has decided to adjust the imported steel products (Certain Steel Products) under implementation.

The specific adjustment results are as follows:

(1) The products of categories 6, 7, 12, 16, and 17 will continue to be implemented from July 1, 2022. Extend safeguards for two years, until June 30, 2024.

(2) For products in categories 1, 2, 4, 5, 13, 19, 20, 21, 25, and 26, the validity period of the safeguard measures will remain unchanged until June 30, 2024.

(3) From July 1, 2022, the allocation of tariff quotas for all 15 product categories, see the original link Schedule 1 and Schedule 2.

(4) For categories 4, 5, and 19, quotas have been revised based on published HMRC trade data.

(5) In categories 1 and 13, the quotas previously allocated to Russia and Belarus are re-allocated to all other countries based on 2021 import data.

(6) The list of exemptions for developing member countries has been updated based on import data from July to December 2021. For the latest list of non-exempt developing countries, see Appendix 3 of the original link.

On October 1, 2020, at the request of the UK Secretary of State for International Trade, the UK initiated a transitional investigation into safeguard measures against imported steel products. On May 21, 2021, the WTO Safeguards Committee issued a notice on safeguards submitted by the British delegation to it, and the British Relief and Investigation Agency (TRA) made a final ruling on safeguards for imported steel products. On September 7, 2021, the Trade Remedy and Investigation Bureau of the Department of International Trade of the United Kingdom initiated a reconsideration investigation procedure for the safeguard measure, and on February 4, 2022, TRA initiated a review investigation procedure for the same safeguard measure again.
