Anti-dumping

On April 8th, 2009 the European Commission initiated an anti-dumping investigation on certain molybdenum wires from China following a complaint received on February 23, 2009 lodged by the European Association of Metals (EUROMETAUX).
The product subject to the duty is classified under the following HS code: ex 8102.9600.

On December 17th, 2009 the European Commission decided upon the imposition of a provisional anti-dumping duty on certain molybdenum wires. The rate of the duty is 64.3%. This provisional anti-dumping duty entered into force on December 19th, 2009 for a period of six months.

On June 14th, 2010 the European Commission decided upon the imposition of a definitive anti-dumping duty on the above-mentioned product. The rate of the definitive duty is identical to the rate of the provisional one, i.e. 64.3%. This definitive anti-dumping duty entered into force on June 17th, 2010.

On May 17th, 2011, the European Commission decided to initiate an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of certain molybdenum wires from Malaysia and Switzerland (see related intervention).

On June 12th, 2015, the European Commission announced the initiation of a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of certain molybdenum wires from China (Notice No 2015/C 194/04, 12.06.2015).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 8102.9600.
This follows the request lodged on March 13th, 2015 by Plansee SE, producer representing 25% of the total EU production of the subject goods.
On 30 June 2016, following the conclusion the above-mentioned sunset review, the European Commission extended the definitive anti-dumping duty on the above good from China (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1046). The rate of the duty is 64.3%.

Anti-circumvention

On May 17th, 2011, the European Commission decided to initiate an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of molybdenum wires, with a maximum cross-sectional dimension that exceeds 1.35 mm but does not exceed 4.0 mm, containing by weight at least 99.95% of molybdenum, from Malaysia and Switzerland (Commission Regulation (EU) No 477/2011, 17.05.2011).
This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed by Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 511/2010 dated June 14th, 2010 on imports of the same products originating in China might be circumvented (see related intervention).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: ex 8102.9600.
The complaint was lodged on April 4th, 2011 by the European Association of Metals (Eurometaux) on behalf of an EU producer of the subject goods.
Commission Regulation (EU) No 477/2011 also makes imports of molybdenum wires from Malaysia and Switzerland subject to registration for a period of nine months.
Commission Regulation (EU) No 477/2011 was published in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 131) on May 18th, 2011.

On January 9th, 2012, the European Commission decided upon the extension of the anti-dumping measure imposed on imports of molybdenum wires containing by weight at least 99.95% of molybdenum originating in China to imports of the same products originating in Malaysia (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 14/2012, 09.01.2012). The rate of the duty is 64.3% 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 8), i.e. on January 13th, 2012.
The investigation in respect of imports consigned from Switzerland was terminated and therefore registration of those imports was suspended.

On June 12th, 2015, the European Commission announced the initiation of a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of certain molybdenum wires from China (Notice No 2015/C 194/04, 12.06.2015).
This follows the request lodged on March 13th, 2015 by Plansee SE, producer representing 25% of the total EU production of the subject goods.
Since the anti-dumping measure imposed on imports of molybdenum wires from China was extended to imports of the same products originating in Malaysia, the sunset review and its conclusion will hold for Malaysia as well.
 
On 30 June 2016, following the conclusion the above-mentioned sunset review, the European Commission extended the definitive anti-dumping duty on the above good from Malaysia (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1046). The rate of the above duty is maintained.
