(ii)to facilitate the adjustment of those UK producers to the importation of the goods in increased quantities,

(b)must not exceed 4 years (but see paragraph 21 regarding the possibility of extensions or other variations to that period following a review), and

(ii)how the quota should be allocated, and

(iii)the rates of import duty that should be applied to goods subject to the quota, and

(ii)to facilitate the adjustment of those UK producers to the importation of the goods in increased quantities, and

(b)where the specified period referred to in paragraph 16(3)(b) exceeds 1 year, must be such that the amount of import duty applicable to goods subject to the quota becomes progressively smaller as the period progresses (whether by increases in the amount of the quota, decreases in the rates of import duty, or both).

(6)Regulations may make provision for the purposes of sub-paragraph (5)(a) about how the things which the TRA is satisfied are necessary for the purposes mentioned are to be determined.
