Anti-subsidy

On March 11, 2015, the European Commission announced the initiation of an anti-subsidy investigation on imports of tubes and pipes of ductile cast iron (also known as spheroidal graphite cast iron) from India (Notice No 2015/C 83/04). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: ex 7303.0010 and ex 7303.0090. The complaint was lodged on January 26, 2015 by Saint-Gobain PAM, Saint-Gobain PAM Deutschland GmbH and Saint-Gobain PAM España SA, on behalf of producers representing more than 25% of the EU production of the subject goods.
 
On 19 March 2016, the European Commission imposed a definitive countervailing duty on imports of the above-mentioned products originating in India (Commission Regulation (EU) No 2016/387 of 17 March 2016). The rate of this duty is 8.7% or 9% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price depending on the company. 

On 17 March 2021, the European Commission initiated a sunset review of the countervailing duty imposed on imports of tubes and pipes of ductile cast iron from India. The review follows the application lodged on 21 December 2020 by Saint-Gobain PAM, Saint-Gobain PAM Deutschland GmbH and Saint-Gobain PAM España S.A.
