ITAC has made a decision and conveyed its recommendations to the Ministry of Trade and Industry.

We don’t know what those recommendations are.


The process is that the Minister will consider ITAC’s recommendations,and if in agreement,he will table them at a meeting of the SA/EU Cooperation Council scheduled for 17th November.

If no agreement is concluded at this meeting,SA still has the right to proceed with a provisional safeguard duty.


We thus expect to hear something officially between 17th and month end.

We will then decide on any action that we can take,
