The European Parliament and the Council agreed on 5 December on the Commission's proposal to modernise the EU's trade defence instruments (TDIs). Together with the new anti-dumping methodology, this is the first major overhaul of the EUs anti-dumping and anti-subsidy instruments since 1995. The overhaul covers a broad range of aspects relating to the way the Commission carries out trade defence investigations for the benefit of EU producers and other businesses, including importers and downstream industries that depend on imports.

The purpose of this meeting is to inform and exchange views with civil society on how the new rules will change our practice.

Lead speaker
Mr Leopoldo Rubinacci, Director, Trade Defence, DG Trade

Mr Michelangelo Margherita, Head of Unit, Information, Communication and Civil Society, DG Trade
