Action: On 9 September 2016, the Official Journal published a notice concerning the judgments in Joined cases C-186/14 P and C-193/14 P in relation to the imposition of anti-dumping duties on imports of the product concerned. As a direct consequence of the judgments, imports into the EU of the product concerned and produced by Hubei Xinyegang Steel Co., Ltd, are deemed to have never been subject to anti-dumping measures, and anti-dumping duties collected so far must therefore be reimbursed in accordance with the applicable customs legislation. Another consequence of the judgments relates to all the other Chinese exporting producers of seamless pipes and tubes, whose imports are currently subject to anti-dumping duties under Commission Implementing Regulation 2015/2272. That consequence is the subject of the published notice. Given that the illegalities identified in the judgments concern the substance of the findings on threat of injury made by the Union institutions, the Commission has decided to reopen the anti-dumping investigation which led to the adoption of Implementing Regulation 2015/2272. The reopening is limited in scope to the repeal of the extended anti-dumping duties on imports of the product concerned pursuant to Implementing Regulation 2015/2272, in so far as those duties are imposed on the Chinese exporting producers named in that Regulation other than Hubei Xinyegang Steel Co., Ltd. The investigation will examine whether it is appropriate to repeal that Regulation in light of the judgments of the Court of Justice and the General Court at stake.
Dates: All interested parties are invited to make their views known, submit information and provide supporting evidence on issues pertaining to the reopening of the investigation. Unless otherwise specified, this information and supporting evidence must reach the Commission within 20 days of the date of publication of the notice in the Official Journal. All interested parties may request to be heard by the Commission investigation services. Any request to be heard should be made in writing and should specify the reasons for the request. For hearings on issues pertaining to the reopening of the investigation the request must be submitted within 15 days of the date of publication of the notice in the Official Journal. Thereafter, a request to be heard must be submitted within the specific deadlines set by the Commission in its communication with the parties.

Action: On 7 September 2016, the Official Journal published a notice of the impending expiry of the anti-dumping measures imposed on oxalic acid.

This request must contain sufficient evidence that the expiry of the measures would be likely to result in a continuation or recurrence of dumping and injury.
