On December 29th, 2008, the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of certain iron or steel fasteners from the European Union.
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7318.1200, 7318.1400, 7318.1500, 7318.2100 and 7318.2200.

On December 23rd, 2009, the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of the above-mentioned goods originating in the European Union (MOFCOM Announcement No. 115 of 2009, 23.12.2009). The rate of the duty is 24.6%, at the exception of the company Kamax-Werke Rudolf Kellermann GMBH & Co. KG whose exports are subject to a duty of 16.8%.
This provisional measure entered into force on December 28th, 2009.

On June 28th, 2010, the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of the above-mentioned goods originating in the European Union (MOFCOM Announcement No. 40 of 2010, 28.06.2010).
