Anti-dumping

On April 9, 2014, the European Commission decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of ferro-silicon originating in China and Russia (Commission Implementing Regulation No. 360/2014, 09.04.2014). The rate of the duty imposed on Chinese exports is 31.2%, at the exception of the exporting companies Erdos Xijin Kuangye Co. Ltd. and Lanzhou Good Land Ferroalloy Factory Co., whose exports are respectively subject to a duty of 15.6% and 29%. The rate of the duty imposed on Russian exports is 22.7%, at the exception of the exporting company Bratsk Ferroalloy Plant, whose exports are subject to a duty of 17.8%. This definitive duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the European Union, i.e. on April 11, 2014. The products subject to the duty are classified under the following HS codes: 7202.2100, 7202.2910 and 7202.2990. This duty follows an expiry review requested on November 28, 2012 by Euroalliages on behalf of producers representing more than 25% of the EU production. The original anti-dumping duty on ferro-silicon was decided on February 25, 2008 (Council Regulation No. 172/2008, 25.02.2008) and entered into force on February 29, 2008. On November 30, 2009 the Russian company Joint Stock Company Chelyabinsk Electrometallurgical Integrated Plant lodged a request for a partial interim review arguing that circumstances have changed. The European Commission decided on October 27, 2010 to launch a partial interim review (2010/C290/07, 27.10.2010). On January 16, 2012, the European authorities terminated the review without amending the duty imposed in 2008 by Council Regulation No. 172/2008 dated February 25, 2008 (Council Implementing Regulation No. 60/2012, 16.01.2012).
