Anti-dumping

On 31 March 2016, the European Commission initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of concrete reinforcement bars and rods originating in the Republic of Belarus (Notice No. 2016/C 114/04).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: ex 7214.10.00, ex 7214.20.00, ex 7214.30.00, ex 7214.91.10, ex 7214.91.90, 7214.99.10, ex 7214.99.71, ex 7214.99.79 and ex 7214.99.95
The complaint was lodged on 15 February 2016 by the European Steel Association Eurofer on behalf of producers representing more than 25% of the EU production of the subject goods.
 
On 20 December 2016, the European Commission announced the decision to impose a provisional duty on imports of the subject good from Belarus. The rate of duty is 12.5% of the net, free-at-Union-frontier price before duty. The measure entered into force the day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union, i.e. 21 December 2016 and is in force for a period of 6 months.

On 17 June 2017, the European Commission announced the decision to impose a definitive duty on imports of the subject good from Belarus. The rate of duty is 10.6% of the net, free-at-Union-frontier price before duty. The measure entered into force the day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union, i.e. 18 June 2017.
