The Commission launched an initiative to modernise the EU's trade defence instruments (TDIs) in October 2011. A first public consultation on the initiative as a whole was open from April to July 2012, and an impact assessment was carried out in autumn 2012. The Communication and legislative proposal were adopted by the Commission on 10 April 2013. The legislative proposal will now follow the ordinary legislative procedure in the Council and Parliament.

Draft guidelines on four complex topics of trade defence investigations, i.e. Union interest, injury margin, analogue country and expiry reviews have been developed and are now made available for stakeholders to comment on in a new public consultation, which will be open until 31 July 2013.

The purpose of this meeting is to exchange views with civil society stakeholders on this initiative as a follow-up to the CSD meeting organised in May 2012 on the issue.
