Plans to undertake new research on the UK steel sector were agreed at the second meeting of the Steel Council in 2016. The research was informed by a detailed programme of 100 interviews across the UK steel supply chain. It was conducted by a Grant Thornton UK LLP-led consortium including Hatch Consulting and the Materials Processing Institute. The consortium received support from a steering board containing representatives from the UK steel sector.
