This notice was published on 30 May 2023 with effect from 31 May 2023.

This public notice is published by the Secretary of State for Business & Trade under paragraph 26(6)(a) of Schedule 4 and section 13(4) of the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Act 2018. It gives effect to the Secretary of State's decision to accept the Trade Remedies Authority's (TRA) recommendation to extend the suspension set out in Trade Remedies notice 2022/05, for a period of 12 months, the anti-dumping duty on certain hot-rolled flat products of iron, non-alloy, or other alloy steel originating in Ukraine.

This notice relates to the anti-dumping duty on hot-rolled iron and steel products from Brazil, Iran, Russia, and Ukraine (the "goods"). The duty was imposed by the European Union on behalf of the UK and the other member states. It was subsequently transitioned to continue to apply in the UK as of 1 January 2021, the end of the transition period. This was set out in the notice of determination 2020/17, and given effect to by taxation notice 2020/17.

On 8 March 2023, the TRA initiated a consideration of a potential extension of the suspension period on the duty on those goods originating in Ukraine, in accordance with regulations 85 to 87 of the Trade Remedies (Dumping and Subsidisation) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019.

The TRA determined that market conditions for Ukrainian hot-rolled steel temporarily changed following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, which commenced on 24 February 2022. Consequently, the TRA concluded that injury caused to UK industry is unlikely to recur if the application of the suspension of the anti-dumping measure on hot rolled coil originating from Ukraine, were to be extended.

The TRA considered that it would be appropriate to suspend the duty and recommended a suspension for a period of 12 months. Further detail of the TRA's investigation and conclusions can be found on the Trade Remedies Service (case SN0033).

The Secretary of State accepted the recommendation to suspend the duty for 12 months, having had regard to the public interest. This notice under section 13 of the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Act 2018 gives effect to this decision, amending taxation notice 2020/17 as follows.

The anti-dumping duty (that is the additional amount of import duty applicable to the net, free-at-the-frontier price, before other amounts of import duty) specified in taxation notice 2020/17 and applicable to the goods below is suspended to the extent below:

The duty is suspended for certain flat-rolled products of iron, non-alloy steel or other alloy steel, whether or not in coils (including ‘cut-to-length’ and ‘narrow strip’ products), not further worked than hot-rolled, not clad, plated or coated.

The following product types are excluded:

The duty is suspended for 12 months from the date this notice takes effect, that is from 31 May 2023 until 30 May 2024 inclusive.
