Anti-circumvention

On September 2, 2014, the European Commission decided to initiate an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of bicycles and other cycles (including delivery tricycles but excluding unicycles), not motorised, from Cambodia, Pakistan and the Philippines (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 938/2014).
This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed by Council Regulation (EU) No 502/2013 dated May 29, 2013 on imports of bicycles from China might be circumvented (see related intervention).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 8712.0030 and ex 8712.0070.
The complaint was lodged on July 23, 2014 by the European Bicycle Manufacturers Association (EBMA) on behalf of fifteen EU domestic producers of bicycles.
Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 938/2014 also makes imports of bicycles originating in Cambodia, Pakistan and the Philippines subject to registration.

On May 18th, 2015, the European authorities decided to extend the duty imposed by Council Regulation (EU) No 502/2013 dated May 29th, 2013 on imports of bicycles from China to imports of the same products originating in Cambodia, Pakistan and the Philippines (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2015/776).
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 122), i.e. on May 20th, 2015.

On 4 June 2018, the European Commission initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of bicycles from China, see related intervention. This follows the application lodged on 5 March 2018 by the European Bicycle Manufacturer's Association. Since the antidumping measure imposed on imports of the subject good from China was extended to imports of the same good from Cambodia, Pakistan and the Philippines following an anti-circumvention investigation, the sunset review and its conclusion will hold for this country as well.
