Anti-circumvention

On 17 June 2009, the European Commission extended the anti-dumping duty imposed by Regulation (EC) No 1174/2005 on imports of certain hand pallet trucks and their essential parts from China to imports from Thailand. The imposition of duties follows an anti-circumvention investigation initiated on 20 September 2008. The products subject to duties are classified under the following HS code subheading: ex 8427 90 00 and ex 8431 20 00. The duty is 46.7 of the net free-at-Community-frontier price.

On 20 July 2010, the European Commission initiated a sunset review on imports of hand pallet trucks and their essential parts originating in the People's Republic of China. This follows the request lodged on 21 April 2010 by BT Products AB and Lifter S.r.l. Since the anti-dumping measure imposed on imports of the subject good from China was extended to imports of the same good from Thailand following an anti-circumvention investigation, the sunset review and its conclusion will hold for this product as well.

On 14 October 2011, the European Commission extended the antidumping duties in force on the subject good from Thailand following the conclusion of the above sunset review. The duty is 46.7 of the net free-at-Union-frontier price.
 
On 25 April 2013, the European Council amended the definitive duty on imports of the subject good from China. This follows the conclusion of a partial interim review initiated on 14 February 2012. The rate of duty is 70.8% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty. Since the anti-dumping measure imposed on imports of the subject good from China was extended to imports of the same good from Thailand following an anti-circumvention investigation, the amended duty of 70.8% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty will apply to imports from Thailand as well.

On 12 October 2016, the European Commission initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on hand pallet trucks and their essential parts originating in the People's Republic of China. This follows the request lodged on 12 July 2016 by Toyota Material Handling Manufacturing Sweden AB and PR Industrial S.r.l. Since the anti-dumping measure imposed on imports of the subject good from China was extended to imports of the same good from Thailand following an anti-circumvention investigation, the sunset review and its conclusion will hold for this country as well.
