Consultation description

We want to know what you think about our proposed list of UK rebalancing measures. These are in response to US additional tariffs on UK steel, aluminium and derivatives.

The UK is currently applying rebalancing measures transitioned from the EU. After this consultation, we will seek to amend our rebalancing measures to make sure they work for the UK.

In particular, we want to hear:

  • specific feedback on the proposed list of rebalancing measures
  • about the effect of the proposed rebalancing measures on your business or sector

Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), we are not able to provide a postal address to respond to this consultation.

Consultation update

On 22 March 2022, the US agreed to the expansive removal of Section 232 tariffs on UK exports of steel, aluminium and derivatives from 1 June 2022. Therefore, the UK will suspend the rebalancing measures that are currently being applied in response to the Section 232 tariffs. The measures will be suspended from 1 June 2022. The UK will keep the suspension under review in response to new developments, for example developments that could worsen the situation for UK exports that are subject to US steel and aluminium tariffs.
