Anti-dumping

On 20 December 2011, the European Commission announced the initiation of an anti-dumping investigation concerning imports of certain aluminium foil from China. The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code subheading: ex 7607 11 11 and ex 7607 19 10. The complaint was lodged on 9 November 2011 by the European Association of Metals (Eurometaux) which represents more than 40 %, of the total Union production of the product concerned.
 
On 19 September 2012, the European Commission imposed provisional anti-dumping duties on imports of the subject product from China. The rate of duty is between 13% and 35.4 of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty depending on the company. The duty is in force for a period of 6 months.
 
On 14 March 2013, the European Council imposed definitive anti-dumping duties on imports of the subject product from China. The rate of duty is between 14.2% and 35.6%of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty depending on the company.

On 13 March 2018, the European Commission initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of certain aluminium foil in rolls from China. The investigation follows the application lodged on 14 December 2017 by ALEURO Converting Sp. Z o.o., CeDo Sp. z.o.o., Cuki Cofresco SpA, Fora Folienfabrik GmbH, ITS BV, Rul-Let A/S, SPHERE SA and Wrapex Ltd.
