Anti-dumping Actions

Commodity: High tenacity yarn of polyesters (other than sewing thread), not put up for retail sale, including monofilament of less than 67, falling within CN code 5402 20 00. This description is found in Article 1 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/325.

Action: The Official Journal has published a Corrigendum to Commission Implementing Regulation 2019/1706 of 10 October 2019 amending Implementing Regulation 2017/325 imposing a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of high tenacity yarns of polyesters. Two corrections are made by means of this publication. A correction is made on page 44, in recital 17 of Regulation 2019/1706, where square brackets are removed from certain wording, although the wording remains the same. Also, on page 44 in Article 1, for the entity named Wuxi Solead Technology Development Co., Ltd, its city is changed from ‘Xinjian Town’ to Yixing City’.

Dates: The Corrigendum was published on 8 November 2019.

Commodity: Prepared or preserved mandarins (including tangerines and satsumas), clementines, wilkings and other similar citrus hybrids, not containing added spirit, whether or not containing added sugar or other sweetening matter, and as defined under CN heading 2008, currently falling within CN codes 2008 30 55, 2008 30 75 and ex 2008 30 90 (TARIC codes 2008309061, 2008309063, 2008309065, 2008309067 and 2008309069). This description is taken from Commission Implementing Regulation 1313/2014.

Countries/Economies: The Chinese mainland.

Action: On 7 November 2019, the Official Journal published Commission Implementing Regulation 2019/1860 amending Commission Implementing Regulation 1313/2014 imposing a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of certain prepared or preserved citrus fruits (namely mandarins, etc.). The publication concerns a request that was made by Zhejiang Xinshiji Foods Co., Ltd. on 29 August 2018 about a name change. Zhejiang Xinshiji Foods Co., Ltd indicated that it changed its name to Zhejiang Juzhou Foods Co., Ltd. The Commission examined the information supplied and concluded that the change of name in no way affects the findings of Commission Implementing Regulation 1313/2014. Additionally, Zhejiang Xinshiji Foods Co., Ltd. notified the Commission that it was no longer related to Hubei Xinshiji Foods Co., Ltd. During the original investigation, the two had been related. Having assessed the evidence provided to it, the Commission accepted that there was indeed sufficient evidence to no longer deem Zhejiang Xinshiji Foods Co., Ltd. and Hubei Xinshiji Foods Co., Ltd. related for the purposes of EU anti-dumping law. To ensure the effective collection of the anti-dumping duties in place, the Commission considered it was necessary to amend Implementing Regulation 1313/2014 accordingly to reflect the individual dumping margins of these two producers. After disclosure to the parties concerned, no comments were received.

Dates: Commission Implementing Regulation 2019/1860 entered into force on the day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Commodity: Poly(vinyl alcohol), whether or not containing unhydrolysed acetate groups, in the form of homopolymer resins with a viscosity (measured in 4 % aqueous solution at 20 °C) of 3 mPa·s or more but not more than 61 mPa·s and a degree of hydrolysis of 80,0 mol% or more but not more than 99,9 mol%, both measured according to the ISO 15023-2 method.’ The codes covering the product under investigation are CN code ex 3905 30 00 (TARIC code 3905300091).

Countries/Economies: The Chinese mainland.

Action: On 7 November 2019, the Official Journal published a Notice clarifying the Notice of initiation of an anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports of certain polyvinyl alcohols. The clarification provided notes that, in Section 2 of the Notice of initiation, which was published on 30 July 2019, the product under investigation is described as follows: ‘The product subject to this investigation is certain PVA in the form of homopolymer resins with a viscosity (measured in 4 % solution) of 3 mPas or more but not exceeding 61 mPas and a degree of hydrolysis of 80,0 mol% or more but not exceeding 99,9 mol% (“the product under investigation”).’ However, the investigation has revealed that this definition is not sufficiently detailed. For this reason, the Commission finds it appropriate to clarify that the product subject to this investigation is: ‘poly(vinyl alcohol), whether or not containing unhydrolysed acetate groups, in the form of homopolymer resins with a viscosity (measured in 4 % aqueous solution at 20 °C) of 3 mPa·s or more but not more than 61 mPa·s and a degree of hydrolysis of 80,0 mol% or more but not more than 99,9 mol%, both measured according to the ISO 15023-2 method.’ In order to avoid further misunderstandings, the Commission also clarifies the CN and TARIC codes that were provided for information only in the first paragraph of Section 3 of the Notice of 30 July 2019. The codes covering the product under investigation are: CN code ex 3905 30 00 (TARIC code 3905300091).

Dates: Interested parties who believe that they are affected by this clarification, or who might not have made themselves known because they believed they were not concerned by this proceeding, are requested to contact the Commission within 7 days of the Notice in order to, where appropriate, make further submissions or make themselves known and, if they wish, to request a questionnaire.
