Trade

Many ceramics companies are strong exporters, earning valuable revenue for the UK economy. The British Ceramic Confederation works with our European Trade Association, Cerame-Unie, in highlighting and managing trade barriers. We also participate in the Department for International Trade's Policy Stakeholder Meetings.

Promoting free and fair trade is the 'T' element of our EARTH campaign.

-With 50% of the sector’s exports sold to the EU, we need to ensure an adequate and comprehensive tariff-free UK-EU trade settlement following Brexit.

- New UK free trade agreements must support UK ceramic manufacturers. 

- We must develop and deploy adequate UK Trade Remedies to protect UK manufacturers against dumped products.
