Anti-circumvention

On 11 April 2017, the Turkish authorities initiated an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of certain tyres made of rubber used in bicycles and certain parts and accessories thereof from Laos (Notification 2017/10). This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive antidumping duty last imposed by Notification 2015/35 on imports of certain bicycle tyres and bicycle tubes from China, India and Thailand (see related intervention) might be circumvented. Additionally, the investigation follows suspicion that the definitive antidumping duty imposed on imports of certain types of bicycle tyres and bicycle tubes from Chinese Taipei, Sri Lanka and Vietnam as well as from Indonesia and Malaysia might also be circumvented, see related measures. The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 4011.50.00.00.00, 4013.20.00.00.00 and 8714.99.
