Anti-circumvention

On September 25th, 2012, the European. Commission decided to initiate an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of unmotorised bicycles and other cycles (including delivery tricycles but excluding unicycles) from Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 875/2012).
This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed by Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 990/2011 dated October 3rd, 2011 on imports of bicycles from China might be circumvented (see measure 3897).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 8712.0030 and ex 8712.0070.
The complaint was lodged on August 14th, 2012 by the European Bicycle Manufacturers Association (EBMA) on behalf of three EU domestic producers of bicycles.
Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 875/2012 also makes imports of bicycles originating in Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia subject to registration.
Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 875/2012 was published in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 258) on September 26th, 2012.

On May 29th, 2013, the European authorities decided to extend the duty imposed by Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 990/2011 dated October 3rd, 2011 on imports of bicycles from China to imports of the same products originating in Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia (Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 501/2013).
The rate of the duty is the highest rate imposed on Chinese imports, i.e. 48.5% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price. Some companies are exempted from the payment of this duty; for more details see Article 1 of the regulation.
This definitive duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the regulation in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 153), i.e. on June 6th, 2013.
