On 6th January, an article from Linklaters says that the EU currently has around 100 anti-dumping measures in place on imported products originating in over 25 countries – and these obviously apply in the UK.  After the transition period ends (or if the UK leaves with no deal), these measures will cease to apply to products imported into the UK unless further action is taken.  In July 2018, the UK Government found that 34 of the existing 100 existing measures – including measures on certain aluminium, iron, steel, ceramic and glass products, as well as biodiesel – met the relevant criteria for maintenance by the UK post-Brexit.  The article discusses the situation, including asking what potential legal issues could the UK encounter if it seeks to grandfather the existing EU AD measures in the event of a “hard” Brexit?
