The latest news is that AMIE has been granted an oral hearing by ITAC on 14th June 2016.

ITAC has promised that no decision will be taken before this hearing.

That being the case,if a decision is taken on that day to proceed with a safeguard it will thereafter take some weeks until the implementation of a provisional measure, as the decision will still have to be ratified by the Minister and confirmed by the joint SA/EU Co-operation Commission,a body that has never met before.

All this may NOT happen as we are still fighting the safeguard proposal directly with ITAC as well as in the public domain.


We will keep you informed.
