Anti-dumping

Complete Title:
EC: Definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of certain stainless steel fasteners and parts thereof from the Philippines following an anti-circumvention investigation and termination without duty of the investigation concerning imports originating in Malaysia and Thailand
 
On June 13, 2012, the European Commission decided to initiate an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of certain stainless steel fasteners and parts thereof from Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand (Commission Regulation (EU) No 502/2012).
 
This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed by Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2/2012 dated January 4, 2012 on imports of the above-mentioned products from China might be circumvented (see measure 4251).
 
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7318.1210, 7318.1410, 7318.1530, 7318.1551, 7318.1561 and 7318.1570.
 
Commission Regulation (EU) No 502/2012 also made imports of certain stainless steel fasteners and parts thereof originating in Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand subject to registration. Commission Regulation (EU) No 502/2012 was published in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 153) on June 14, 2012 and entered into force on June 15, 2012.
 
On March 7, 2013, the European authorities decided to extend the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of certain stainless steel fasteners from China to imports of certain stainless steel fasteners originating in the Philippines (Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 205/2013).
 
The rate of the duty is the rate applicable to Chinese 'all other companies' according to Commission Regulation (EU) No 502/2012, i.e. 27.4%, at the exception of the companies Multi-Tek Fasteners Inc., Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga, Philippines and Rosario Fasteners Corporation, Cavite Economic Area, Philippines whose exports are not subject to the payment of the duty. The investigation concerning imports originating in Malaysia and Thailand terminated without the imposition of a duty. Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 205/2013 was published in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 68) on March 12, 2013 and entered into force on March 13, 2013.
 
On July 30, 2014, following a partial interim review of the duty imposed on imports of certain stainless steel fasteners and parts thereof originating in China and Chinese Taipei (see measure 4251), the European authorities amended Council Regulation (EC) No 1890/2005, Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2/2012 and Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 205/2013 (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 830/2014).
 
The product scope has been redefined and now excludes bi-metal fasteners and bi-metal self-tapping screws (both classified under HS code ex 7318.1410) from the goods subject to the duty. However, excepting those two goods, HS code 7318.14140 remains affected. Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 830/2014 was published in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 228) on July 31, 2014 and entered into force on August 1, 2014 with retroactive application back from November 20, 2005.
