Anti-dumping

On November 13, 2010, the European Commission announced the initiation of a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of steel ropes and cables with a maximum cross-sectional dimension exceeding 3 mm (including locked coil ropes, excluding ropes and cables of stainless steel) from China, South Africa and Ukraine (Notice No 2010/C 309/05).
This follows the request lodged on July 29, 2010 by the Liaison Committee of EU Wire Rope Industries on behalf of producers representing more than 25% of the EU production of the subject goods.
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: ex 7312.1081, ex 7312.1083, ex 7312.1085, ex 7312.1089 and ex 7312.1098.
On January 27, 2012, the European authorities decided upon the continuation of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of steel ropes and cables originating in China and Ukraine (Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 102/2012). The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in China is 60.4% of the CIF net free-at-Union-frontier price. The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in Ukraine is 51.8% of the CIF net free-at-Union-frontier price. The duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the regulation in the Official Journal of the European Union, i.e. on February 10, 2012. The duty imposed on imports originating in South Africa was not extended.
The original anti-dumping duty was imposed by Council Regulation (EC) No 1796/1999 dated August 12, 1999 and published in the Official Journal of the European Communities on August 17, 1999. It was extended a first time by Council Regulation (EC) No 1858/2005 dated November 8, 2005 and published in the Official Journal of the European Union on November 16, 2005.
On November 18, 2014, the European Commission announced the initiation of a partial interim review of the anti-dumping measure imposed by Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 102/2012 dated January 27, 2012 (Notice No 2014/C 410/08).
This follows the request lodged by PJSC 'PA' 'Stalkanat-Silur', an exporting producer from Ukraine, arguing that the circumstances on the basis of which the existing measures were imposed have changed and that these changes are of a lasting nature. The partial interim review is limited in scope to the examination of dumping as far as the applicant is concerned.
On 28 January 2016, based on the above mentioned partial interim review, the European Commission imposed a separate definitive anti-dumping duty of 10.5% on imports of steel ropes and cables originating from the Ukrainian PJSC 'PA' 'Stalkanat-Silur' (Notice No. 2016/90). All other companies from Ukraine remain subject to the original duty of 51.8%.
 
On 8 February 2017, the European Commission initiated a sunset review on imports of the subject good from China. This follows the request lodged on 7 November 2016 by the Liaison Committee of E.U. Wire Rope Industries (EWRIS). Since the anti-dumping measure imposed on imports of steel ropes and cables from China was extended to imports of the same products originating in Morocco and the Republic of Korea, the sunset review and its conclusion will hold for this country as well.

On 21 April 2018, the European Commission extended the definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of subject good from China following the conclusion of a sunset review. The rate of duty is 60.4% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty. The definitive duty imposed on imports from Ukraine was terminated on 10 February 2017 as no application had been submitted for the continuance of duties. Additionally, duties were terminated or extended on imports of the subject good from the Republic of Korea, Moldova and Morocco, see related interventions.
