Anti-dumping

On 20 December 2008, the European Union extended the definitive duty imposed on imports of certain welded tubes and pipes from Ukraine and Thailand following the conclusion of the sunset review initiated in September 2007. The goods subject to definitive duties fall under the following HS code subheadings: ex 7306 30 41, ex 7306 30 49, ex 7306 30 72 and ex 7306 30 77. The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in Thailand is 35.2% of the net free-at-Community-frontier price, at the exception of the company Saha Thai Steel Pipe Co. Ltd whose exports are subject to a duty of 21.7%. The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in Ukraine is 44.1% of the net free-at-Community-frontier price, at the exception of the companies OJSC Interpipe Nihnedeneprovsky Tube Rolling Plant and OJSC Interpipe Novomoskovsk Pipe Production Plant whose exports are subject to a duty of 10.7%. The regulation extending the definitive duty was published on 19 December 2008. The regulation additionally imposed a definitive duty of the same good from Russia, Belarus and China, see related intervention. 

On 19 December 2013, the European Commission initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Ukraine. The investigation follows the application lodged on 18 September 2013 by the Defence Committee of the welded steel tubes industry of the European Union. No sunset review was initiated on imports of the subject good from Thailand.

On 27 January 2015, the European Commission issued its conclusion of the sunset review and terminated the definitive duty retrospectively from 20 December 2013.
