Anti-dumping

On May 14th, 2015, the European Commission announced the initiation of an anti-dumping investigation on imports of flat-rolled products of iron or non-alloy steel (or other alloy steel but excluding of stainless steel), of all widths, cold-rolled (cold-reduced), not clad, plated or coated and not further worked than cold-rolled (cold-reduced), from China and Russia (Notice No 2015/C 161/07).

The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: ex 7209.1500, 7209.1690, 7209.1790, 7209.1891, ex 7209.1899, ex 7209.2500, 7209.2690, 7209.2790, 7209.2890, 7211.2330, ex 7211.2380, ex 7211.2900, 7225.5080 and 7226.9200.
The complaint was lodged on April 1st, 2015 by Eurofer, on behalf of EU producers representing more than 25% of the EU production of the subject goods.

On 13 February 2016, the European Commission imposed a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of the above-mentioned products originating in China and Russia (Commission Regulation (EU) No 2016/181 of 10 January 2016). The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in China is 13.8%, 14.5% or 16% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price depending on the company. The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in China is 19.8%, 25.4% or 26.2% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price depending on the company. The duty will be in force for a period of six months.
 
On 4 August 2016, the European authorities imposed a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of above product from China and Russia (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2016/1328). The amount of duty imposed on imports from China is between 19.7% and 22.1% depending on the company. The amount of duty imposed on imports from Russia is between 18.7% and 36.1% depending on the company. The measure enters into force the day following Regulation's publication, i.e. on 5 August 2016.
