Lorand BartelsDr Lorand Bartels was invited to give evidence to the House of Commons International Trade Committee, on Wednesday 14th October.

The Committee is considering the UK’s Trade Remedies Authority (TRA), which will administer the UK’s antidumping duties, countervailing (anti-subsidy) duties, and safeguard measures from the end of the UK-EU transitional period in 2021. The evidence session concerned the criteria to be applied in deciding on trade remedies, in particular the ‘economic interest test’, and how these criteria compare to those of other countries, as well as the structure and functioning of the TRA.

Lorand Bartels is Reader in International Law and a Fellow of Trinity Hall, and has published several books on international trade law, including Bilateral and Regional Trade Agreements, 2 vols (Cambridge, 2016), co-edited with Simon Lester and Bryan Mercurio.

The hearing is available to stream from the Parliament website.
