Anti-dumping

On July 13th, 2010, the European Commission announced the initiation of a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of bicycles and other cycles (including delivery tricycles but excluding unicycles), not motorised, from China (Notice No 2010/C 188/05).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 8712.0010, 8712.0030 and ex 8712.0080.
This follows the request lodged on April 13th, 2010 by the European Bicycle Manufacturers Association (EBMA) on behalf of companies representing more than 25% of the total EU domestic production of bicycles.
 
On October 3rd, 2011, the European authorities decided upon the continuation of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of bicycles originating in China (Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 990/2011, 03.10.2011). The rate of the duty is 48.5% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price. This definitive duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the regulation in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 261), that is on October 7th, 2011.
 
The original anti-dumping duty was imposed by Regulation (EEC) No 2474/93 (published in the Official Journal on September 9th, 1993). It was extended following an anti-circumvention investigation by Council Regulation (EC) No 71/97 (published in the Official Journal on January 18th, 1997). The first expiry review was positively concluded by Council Regulation (EC) No 1524/2000 (published in the Official Journal on July 14th, 2000). Moreover, the measure was modified, following an interim review, by Council Regulation (EC) No 1095/2005 (published in the Official Journal on July 14th, 2005).
 
On March 9th, 2012, the European Commission announced the initiation of an ex-officio interim review of the above-mentioned anti-dumping measure imposed on imports of bicycles from China (Notice No 2012/C 71/07).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 8712.0030 and ex 8712.0070.
Reason for this interim review was that the circumstances on the basis of which the existing measures were imposed might have changed and that these changes may be of a lasting nature.
 
On May 29th, 2013, the European authorities concluded the above-mentioned ex-officio interim review and decided upon a modification of the anti-dumping measure imposed on imports of bicycles originating in China (Council Regulation (EU) No 502/2013, 29.05.2013).
The normal rate of the duty remains 48.5% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price. However, the companies Oyama Bicycles (Taicang) Co. Ltd. and Ideal (Dongguan) Bike Co., Ltd. are exempted from the payment of this duty. Moreover, the company Zhejiang Baoguilai Vehicle Co. Ltd. is subject to the payment of a reduced duty, at a rate of 19.2% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price.
This modification of the anti-dumping measure entered into force on the day following the publication of the regulation in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 153), that is on June 6th, 2013.

On 4 June 2018, the European Commission initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of bicycles from China. This follows the application lodged on  5 March 2018 by the European Bicycle Manufacturer's Association.

Anti-circumvention

On September 25th, 2012, the European. Commission decided to initiate an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of unmotorised bicycles and other cycles (including delivery tricycles but excluding unicycles) from Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 875/2012).
This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed by Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 990/2011 dated October 3rd, 2011 on imports of bicycles from China might be circumvented, see related intervention.
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 8712.0030 and ex 8712.0070.
The complaint was lodged on August 14th, 2012 by the European Bicycle Manufacturers Association (EBMA) on behalf of three EU domestic producers of bicycles.
Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 875/2012 also makes imports of bicycles originating in Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia subject to registration.
Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 875/2012 was published in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 258) on September 26th, 2012.

On May 29th, 2013, the European authorities decided to extend the duty imposed by Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 990/2011 dated October 3rd, 2011 on imports of bicycles from China to imports of the same products originating in Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia (Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 501/2013).
The rate of the duty is the highest rate imposed on Chinese imports, i.e. 48.5% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price. Some companies are exempted from the payment of this duty; for more details see Article 1 of the regulation.
This definitive duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the regulation in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 153), i.e. on June 6th, 2013.

On 4 June 2018, the European Commission initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of bicycles from China, see related intervention. This follows the application lodged on 5 March 2018 by the European Bicycle Manufacturer's Association. Since the antidumping measure imposed on imports of the subject good from China was extended to imports of the same good from Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia following an anti-circumvention investigation, the sunset review and its conclusion will hold for this country as well.

This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed by Council Regulation (EU) No 502/2013 dated May 29, 2013 on imports of bicycles from China might be circumvented (see related intervention).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 8712.0030 and ex 8712.0070.
The complaint was lodged on July 23, 2014 by the European Bicycle Manufacturers Association (EBMA) on behalf of fifteen EU domestic producers of bicycles.

On May 18th, 2015, the European authorities decided to extend the duty imposed by Council Regulation (EU) No 502/2013 dated May 29th, 2013 on imports of bicycles from China to imports of the same products originating in Cambodia, Pakistan and the Philippines (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2015/776).
The rate of the duty is the highest rate imposed on Chinese imports, i.e. 48.5% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price. Some companies are exempted from the payment of this duty; for more details see Article 1 of the regulation.
This definitive duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the regulation in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 122), i.e. on May 20th, 2015.

On 4 June 2018, the European Commission initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of bicycles from China, see related intervention.

Since the antidumping measure imposed on imports of the subject good from China was extended to imports of the same good from Cambodia, Pakistan and the Philippines following an anti-circumvention investigation, the sunset review and its conclusion will hold for this country as well.
