Anti-circumvention

On January 27, 2012, the European authorities decided upon the continuation of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of steel ropes and cables with a maximum cross-sectional dimension exceeding 3 mm (including locked coil ropes, excluding ropes and cables of stainless steel) originating in China and Ukraine (Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 102/2012) (see related intervention).
The products subject to the duty are classified under the following HS codes: ex 7312.1081, ex 7312.1083, ex 7312.1085, ex 7312.1089 and ex 7312.1098.
The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in Ukraine is 51.8% of the CIF net free-at-Union-frontier price. This anti-dumping measure continues to be extended to imports originating in Moldova, at the same rate. The duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the regulation in the Official Journal of the European Union, i.e. on February 10, 2012.
This extension of the duty follows the application lodged on July 29, 2010 by the Liaison Committee of EU Wire Rope Industries on behalf of producers representing more than 25% of the EU production of the subject goods.

On November 13, 2010, the European Commission announced the initiation of a sunset review (Notice No 2010/C 309/05). The anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of steel ropes and cables from Ukraine was extended to imports originating in Moldova for the first time on April 22, 2004 by Council Regulation (EC) No 760/2004. This regulation entered into force on the day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 120), i.e. on April 25, 2004.
It followed the request lodged on June 16, 2003 by the Liaison Committee of the European Federation of Steel Wire Rope Industries (EWRIS) to investigate the alleged circumvention of the anti-dumping measure imposed by Council Regulation (EC) No 1796/1999 dated August 12, 1999 on imports of steel ropes and cables originating in Ukraine. The investigation was initiated by Commission Regulation (EC) 1347/2003 dated July 29, 2003 and published in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 190) on July 30, 2003.
 
On 10 February 2017, the duty was terminated as no application was submitted for the continuation of duties.
