Anti-dumping

On February 16th, 2008, the European Commission announced the initiation of an anti-dumping investigation on imports of certain wire of non-alloy steel (not plated or not coated or plated or coated with zinc) and stranded wire of non-alloy steel (whether or not plated or coated), containing by weight 0.6% or more of carbon, with a maximum cross-sectional dimension exceeding 3 mm, from China (Notice No 2008/C 43/04, 16.02.2008).
The complaint was lodged on January 3rd, 2008 by Eurostress Information Service on behalf of producers representing more than 25% of the total EU production of the products under scrutiny.
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: ex 7217.1090, ex 7217. 2090, ex 7312.1061, ex 7312.1065 and ex 7312.1069.
 
On November 14th, 2008, the European Commission decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of PSC wires and strands from China (Commission Regulation (EC) No. 1129/2008, 14.11.2008). The rate of the duty ranges from 2.1% to 52.2% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price, depending on the company. This provisional duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the European Union, i.e. on November 16th, 2008, and is applicable for a period of six months.
 
On May 5th, 2009, the European authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of PSC wires and strands from China (Council Regulation (EC) No. 383/2009, 05.05.2009). The rate of the duty ranges is 46.2% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price, at the exception of the companies Ossen Innovation Materials Co. Joint Stock Company Ltd andOssen Jiujiang Steel Wire Cable Co. Ltd. whose exports are subject to a duty of 31.1% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price. Moreover, the company Kiswire Qingdao, Ltd is not subject to the payment of any duty. This definitive duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the European Union, i.e. on May 14th, 2009.
 
On May 8th, 2014, the European Commission announced the initiation of a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of PSC wires and strands from China (Notice No 2014/C 138/10).
This follows the request lodged on February 7th, 2014 by the European Stress Information Service on behalf of producers representing more than 25% of the total EU production of the subject goods.
 
On June 4th, 2015, the European authorities decided upon the continuation of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of PSC wires and strands originating in China (Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2015/865, 04.06.2015). The amount of the duty remains the same (see above). This definitive duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the regulation in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 139), that is on June 7th, 2015.
