Anti-dumping

On February 18, 2010 the European Commission issued a notice of initiation of an anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports of coated fine paper originating in the People's Republic of China. The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: ex 4810.13.20, ex 4810.13.80, ex 4810.14.20, ex 4810.14.80, ex 4810.19.10, ex 4810.19.90, ex 4810.22.10, ex 4810.22.90, ex 4810.29.30, ex 4810.29.80, ex 4810.92.10, ex 4810.92.30, ex 4810.92.90, ex 4810.99.10, ex 4810.99.30 and ex 4810.99.90. The investigation was opened following a complaint lodged by CEPIFINE, the European association of fine paper manufacturers on January 4, 2010. An anti-subsidy investigation was launched in April on imports of the same products from China, see related measure.
 
On 18 November 2010, the European Commission imposed a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of the above-mentioned products originating in China (Commission Regulation (EU) No. 1042/2010). The rate of this duty is 19.7% or 39.1% depending on the company. The duty is in force for a period of 6 months.
 
On May 16, 2011 the European Commission issued a notice of imposing definitive anti-dumping duties concerning coated fine paper originating in China (Council implementing regulation (EU) No 451/2011). The rate of duty is between 8% and 35.1% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price depending on the company.
 
On 13 May 2016, the European Commission initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of the above products from China (Notice No. 2016/C 172/06). This follows the request lodged on 12 February 2016 by Arctic Paper Grycksbo AB, Burgo Group SpA, Fedrigoni SpA, Lecta Group and Sappi Europe SA on behalf of producers representing more than 25% of the total EU production of the subject goods.

On 5 July 2017, the European Commission extended the definitive antidumping duty imposed on imports of subject good from China following the conclusion of the above sunset review. The rate of duty is between 8% and 35.1%.
