Anti-dumping

On 13 February 2016, the European Commission announced the initiation of an anti-dumping investigation on imports of certain hot-rolled flat products of iron, non-alloy or other alloy steel, from China. (Notice No 2016/C 58/08). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7208.10.00, 7208.25.00, 7208.26.00, 7208.27.00, 7208.36.00, 7208.37.00, 7208.38.00, 7208.39.00, 7208.40.00, 7208.52.99, 7208.53.90, 7208.54.00, 7211.14.00, 7211.19.00, 7225.19.10, 7225.30.10, 7225.30.30, 7225.30.90, 7225.40.12, 7225.40.15, ex 7225.40.60, 7225.40.90, 7226.19.10, ex 7226.20.00, 7226.91.20, 7226.91.91 and 7226.91.99. 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 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 2016/1778). The rate of duty is between 13.2% and 22.6 % of the net free-at-Union-frontier price depending on the company. The measure is in force for a period of 6 months.
 
On 7 April 2017, the European Commission imposed a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of the subject good from China (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2017/649). The amount of duty is between 18.1% and 35.9% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty depending on the company.

On 10 June 2017, the European Commission amended the definitive antidumping duty imposed in April on imports of the subject good from China. The rate of duty is between 10.3% and 31.3% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty and only applies to a limited number of companies. As such, companies not specifically listed are not subject to antidumping duties. The Commission notes that the list of companies subject to duties may be amended.
