Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I was not aware of this "Consultation outcome."

Final findings of the call for evidence into UK interest in existing EU trade remedy measures , last update 2 May 2019?

Implementation period

  1. The UK will leave the European Union on 29 March 2019. The UK and EU negotiating teams have reached agreement on the terms of an implementation period that will start on 29 March 2019 and last until 31 December 2020. During the implementation period, EU trade remedy rules and regulations will continue to apply. This would include applying new EU trade remedy measures that come into force during the implementation period.

  2. For any new measures, which the EU puts in place during the implementation period, we will approach any UK producers of the affected product(s). This is to understand whether there is an interest in such measures being maintained once the UK begins to operate its independent trade policy.

  3. We understand that UK production and market share of the products covered by trade remedy measures may change during the implementation period. That may mean that, towards the end of the implementation period, we will need to review some decisions about which measures we will maintain. We would do this based on up to date evidence, in discussion with relevant stakeholders. This activity will not affect the EU's current competence, regulations and process for bringing forward new trade remedies complaints and the initiation of new investigations. UK industry should continue to approach the European Commission for the purposes of initiating new investigations until further notice.
UK parliament is so FOS.
