Anti-dumping

On 13 February 2016, the European Commission announced the initiation of an anti-dumping investigation on imports of flat products of non-alloy or alloy steel (excluding stainless steel, silicon- electrical steel, tool steel and high-speed steel), hot-rolled, not clad, plated or coated, not in coils, of a specific thickness and width, from China (Notice No 2016/C 58/09). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: ex. 7208.51.20, 7208.51.91, 7208.51.98, 7208.52.91, 7208.90.20, 7208.90.80, 7225.40.40, 7225.40.60 and 7225.99.00. The complaint was lodged on 4 January 2016 by The European Steel Association (EUROFER), on behalf of producers representing more than 25% of the EU production of the subject goods.
 
On 11 August 2016, the European Commission imposed a Customs registration requirement on the above goods from China for a period of nine months.

On 8 October 2016, the European Commission imposed a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of the above product from China (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2016/1777). The rate of duty is between 65.1% and 73.7 % of the net free-at-Union-frontier price depending on the company. The measure is in force for a period of 6 months.
 
On 29 February 2017, the European Commission imposed a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of the subject good from China (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2017/336). The amount of duty is between 65.1% and 73.7% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty depending on the company.
