Anti-dumping

On 28 February 2013, the European Commission initiated a sunset review of the definitive antidumping duty imposed on imports of ferro-silicon from China and Russia. The investigation follows the application lodged on 28 November 2012 by Euroalliages on behalf of producers representing more than 25% of the EU production. The original anti-dumping duty was imposed on February 25, 2008 (Council Regulation No. 172/2008, 25.02.2008) and entered into force on February 29, 2008. 

On April 9, 2014, the European Commission decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of ferro-silicon originating in China and Russia (Commission Implementing Regulation No. 360/2014, 09.04.2014). The rate of the duty imposed on Chinese exports is 31.2%, at the exception of the exporting companies Erdos Xijin Kuangye Co. Ltd. and Lanzhou Good Land Ferroalloy Factory Co., whose exports are respectively subject to a duty of 15.6% and 29%. The rate of the duty imposed on Russian exports is 22.7%, at the exception of the exporting company Bratsk Ferroalloy Plant, whose exports are subject to a duty of 17.8%. This definitive duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the European Union, i.e. on April 11, 2014. The products subject to the duty are classified under the following HS codes: 7202.2100, 7202.2910 and 7202.2990. 

On 2 April 2019, the European Commission initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from China and Russia. The investigation follows the application lodged on 3 January 2019 by Euroalliages.
