Anti-subsidy

On September 19, 2010 the European Commission issued a notice of initiation of an anti-subsidy proceeding concerning imports of wireless wide area networking (WWAN) modems originating in the People's Republic of China. The investigation was launched following the complaint receivedOPTION NV, the sole producer of wireless wide area networking (WWAN) modems in the European Union, representing 100 % of the total Union production. The product under investigation is "wireless wide area networking (WWAN) modems with a radio antenna and providing Internet Protocol (IP) data connectivity for computing devices and including Wi-Fi routers comprising a WWAN modem (WWAN/Wi-Fi routers)" (quoted from the notice of initiation, see Source). Due to a critical situation on the market the EC introduced registration of imports so that the duty may be applied retroactively up to 90 days.
On January 26, 2011 the request for safeguard measures has been withdrawn by the European Commission.
On March 2, 2011 the European Commission decided to terminate the anti-dumping and the anti-subsidy proceedings without imposing any measures concerning imports into the European Union of WWAN modems originating from China.
