EC: Interim review of antidumping measures on imports of ferro-silicon originating in Russia
On 27 October 2010 the European Commission announced an interim review of antidumping measures applicable to imports of ferro-silicon originating in Russia.
The measure currently in force is a definitive antidumping duty. The reason for the interim review is is that that the circumstances have changed and these changes are of lasting nature. The investigation will be concluded within 15 months.

|Is there any evidence that alternatives to the proposed measure were considered?|
|Is there anything in the public record that suggests that empirical evidence informed the comparison across the alternatives available to government?|
|Was such evidence identified?|
|Is such evidence publicly available?|
|Did the official decision-maker in question provide an explanation as to why a chosen measure was favoured over alternatives?|
|Is there any evidence to suggest that potentially affected trading partners were consulted before the measures were taken?|
|Is there any evidence that safeguards have been put in place to ensure that implementation of the initiative is transparent and non-discriminatory?|
|Did the government state its intention to review the measure within one year of implementation?|
