Anti-dumping Action

Commodity: Ceramic tableware and kitchenware, excluding ceramic knives, ceramic condiment or spice mills and their ceramic grinding parts, ceramic peelers, ceramic knife sharpeners and cordierite ceramic pizza-stones of a kind used for baking pizza or bread, currently falling within CN codes ex 6911 10 00, ex 6912 00 10, ex 6912 00 30, ex 6912 00 50 and ex 6912 00 90 (TARIC codes 6911 10 00 90, 6912 00 10 11, 6912 00 10 91, 6912 00 30 10, 6912 00 50 10 and 6912 00 90 10).

Countries/Economies: The Chinese mainland.

Action: On 28 June 2019, the Official Journal published Commission Implementing Regulation 2019/1099 amending Council Implementing Regulation 412/2013 imposing a definitive anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of ceramic tableware and kitchenware originating in the Chinese mainland. In May 2018, the company Fujian Dehua Sanfeng Ceramics Co. Ltd (‘the applicant’) submitted a request to be granted new exporting producer treatment, claiming that it met the necessary criteria. In order to substantiate its claim, the applicant provided a questionnaire response to the Commission. Following its analysis of the questionnaire response, the Commission requested further information and supporting evidence which was provided by the applicant. The Commission concluded that the applicant fulfilled the three criteria required in order to be considered as a new exporting producer. Consequently, it decided that the applicant should be granted new exporting producer treatment and therefore its name should be added to the list of cooperating companies not included in the sample listed in Annex I to Implementing Regulation 412/2013.

Rates: Any new exporting producer can be granted the duty rate applicable to the cooperating companies not included in the sample, namely the weighted average duty rate of 17.9%, where it provides sufficient evidence to the Commission, which is what happened in the case of the applicant Fujian Dehua Sanfeng Ceramics Co. Ltd.

Dates: Commission Implementing Regulation 2019/1099 entered into force on the day following that of its publication in the Official Journal.

Commodity: Essential bicycle parts, as described in Article 1 of Regulation 71/97.

Countries/Economies: The Chinese mainland.

Action: On 26 June 2019, the Official Journal published Commission Implementing Decision 2019/1087 concerning exemptions from the extended anti-dumping duty on certain bicycle parts originating in the Chinese mainland, pursuant to Regulation 88/97. The Commission recalls in the new Decision that an anti-dumping duty applies on imports of essential bicycle parts originating in the Chinese mainland, known as ‘the extended duty’, as a result of the extension of the anti-dumping duty on imports of bicycles originating in the Chinese mainland by Regulation 71/97. Under Article 3 of Regulation 71/97 the Commission is empowered to adopt the necessary measures to authorise the exemption of imports of essential bicycle parts which do not circumvent the anti-dumping duty. As such, the Commission has exempted a number of bicycle assemblers from the extended duty. Article 1 of the new Decision notes that the parties listed in the Table in the same Article are exempted from the extended duty. The exemptions shall take effect as from the dates of receipt of the parties' requests. Among other matters, the new Decision also stipulates, at Article 4, that the suspension of the payment of the extended anti-dumping duty is lifted for the parties listed in the Table in the same Article. Therefore, the extended duty should be collected as from the date on which the suspension took effect, for those parties. In addition, Article 5 stipulates that the authorisation of the exemption of payment of the extended anti-dumping duty is hereby revoked for the party listed in the Table in the same Article. The extended duty should be collected as from the date on which the revocation of the authorisation took effect.

Dates: The Decision was “Done at Brussels” on 19 June 2019.
