Anti-subsidy

On March 11, 2015, the European Commission announced the initiation of an anti-subsidy investigation on imports of tubes and pipes of ductile cast iron (also known as spheroidal graphite cast iron) from India (Notice No 2015/C 83/04).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: ex 7303.0010 and ex 7303.0090.
The complaint was lodged on January 26, 2015 by Saint-Gobain PAM, Saint-Gobain PAM Deutschland GmbH and Saint-Gobain PAM España SA, on behalf of producers representing more than 25% of the EU production of the subject goods.
 
On 19 March 2016, the European Commission imposed a definitive countervailing duty on imports of the above-mentioned products originating in India (Commission Regulation (EU) No 2016/387 of 17 March 2016). The rate of this duty is 8.7% or 9% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price depending on the company.
