Herewith an update on progress:


After an oral hearing,ITAC is obliged to send out an “Essential Facts Letter” setting out the information that has been taken into account in order for them to reach an opinion on a Safeguard implementation.

This letter is customarily distributed around seven to ten days after the oral hearing.


         We are now 17 days after the hearing and have not yet received such notification.

          This could mean that they have not yet completed their consideration of all the information presented to them or that they will only consider taking a decision at their next meeting,which is due to take place on the second Tuesday in August.
