Anti-subsidy

On 16 February 2011, the European Commission initiated a anti-subsidy investigation on imports of polyethylene terephthalate originating in Oman and Saudi Arabia. The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS code subheading: 3907.60.20. The complaint was lodged on 3 January 2011 by the Committee of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Manufacturers in Europe, which represents more than half of the total Union production of certain polyethylene terephthalate. On the same day an anti-dumping investigation was initiated on the above product from Oman and Saudi Arabia, see related measure.
 
On 15 December 2011 the European Commission terminated the above anti-subsidy investigation without the imposition of duties. This follows that the Committee of Polyethylene Terephthalate Manufacturers in Europe withdrew their complaint on 12 October 2011.
