Anti-dumping

On February 16, 2012, the European Commission opened proceedings concerning ceramic tableware and kitchenware originating from China, over allegations of price dumping between 2007 and 2011.
The opening of the proceedings came after three associations representing ceramic and tableware producers in Europe filed a complaint. The associations were: the European Federation for Table and Ornamentalware, the Association of German Ceramic Producers and the equivalent association in Italy.
The 8 digit HS codes for the products in question are: 6911 1000; 6912 0010; 6912 0030; 6912 0050.
On 14 November 2012 the Commission communicated the imposition of provisional anti-dumping duties on the product investigated.
On 13 May 2013, the Commission announced the imposition of definitive anti-dumping duties on the subject product.

On 15 May 2018, the European Commission initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from China. The investigation follows the application lodged on 16 February 2018 by the FEPF – European Federation for Table-and Ornamentalware.
