Claire Bassett, Director of the Trade Remedies Investigations Directorate (TRID) and Chief Executive Designate of the Trade Remedies Authority (TRA) has announced her resignation from the post and is set to take up a new role at the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

Simon Walker CBE, Chair Designate of the Trade Remedies Authority will continue to head up the organisation while a new Chief Executive Designate is appointed.

The Reading-based Trade Remedies Authority will be the UK-wide body responsible for investigating claims of harmful and unfair trading practices, such as the dumping of foreign products on the UK market at below fair market rates.

It will come into effect once the Trade Bill is passed. As the Trade Remedies Investigations Directorate, it has already begun operations and is carrying out transition reviews into current EU measures to make sure that they are fit for purpose for UK industry.
