Anti-dumping

On November 1, 2011, the European Commission announced an initiation of an anti-dumping investigation concerning imports of certain tube and pipe fittings originating in Russia and Turkey. The complaint was lodged on 20 September 2011 by the Defence Committee of the Steel Butt-Welding Fittings Industry of the European Union, which represents 25% of the EU production of the product concerned.
 
As of August 1, 2012, the European Council imposed for a period of six months a provisional anti-dumping duty on "imports of tube and pipe fittings (other than cast fittings, flanges and threaded fittings), of iron or steel (not including stainless steel), with a greatest external diameter not exceeding 609.6mm, of a kind used for butt-welding or other purposes, currently falling within HS code subheadings: ex 7307 93 11, ex 7307 93 19 and ex 7307 99 80 (TARIC codes 7307 93 11 91, 7307 93 11 93, 7307 93 11 94, 7307 93 11 95, 7307 93 11 99, 7307 93 19 91, 7307 93 19 93, 7307 93 19 94, 7307 93 19 95, 7307 93 19 99, 7307 99 80 92, 7307 99 80 93, 7307 99 80 94, 7307 99 80 95 and 7307 99 80 98) and originating in Russia and Turkey" (203/37). The rate of duty on imports from Turkey is between 2.9% and 16.7% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty depending on the company. The rate of duty on imports from Russia is 23.8% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty.
 
On 17 January 2013, the Council imposed definitive anti-dumping duties on the subject product imported from Russia and Turkey. The rate of duty on imports from Turkey remains between 2.9% and 16.7% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty depending on the company. The rate of duty on imports from Russia remains at 23.8% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty.

On 27 January 2018, the European Commission initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of certain tube and pipe fittings from Russia and Turkey. The investigation follows the application lodged on 25 October 2017 by the Defence Committee of the Steel Butt-Welding Fittings Industry.
