On January 17, 2019, the government of the United Kingdom (UK) announced that its new independent Trade Remedies Authority (TRA) will be ready if the UK exits the European Union on March 29, 2019.

According to the press release, “[t]he TRA will form a key part of the UK’s new independent trade policy” and will be responsible for investigating cases of unfair trade practices. The TRA also has planned to launch a website to allow people to submit applications and evidence for such investigations.
