Anti-dumping Actions

Commodity: Lever arch mechanisms generally used for archiving sheets and other documents in binders or files currently falling within CN code ex 8305 10 00 (TARIC code 8305 10 00 50).

Countries/Economies: The Chinese mainland.

Action: The Official Journal has published a notice concerning the anti-dumping measures in force in respect of imports into the Union of lever arch mechanisms. More specifically, the notice concerns the change of name of one company subject to an individual anti-dumping duty rate. Imports of lever arch mechanisms originating in the Chinese mainland are subject to a definitive anti-dumping duty imposed by Council Regulation 1136/2006 and extended by Council Implementing Regulation 796/2012. Dongguan Nanzha Leco Stationary, TARIC (the integrated Tariff of the European Union) additional code A729, a company subject to an individual anti-dumping duty rate of 27.1%, informed the Commission that it has changed its name to DongGuan Humen Nanzha World Wide Stationery Mfg. Co., Ltd. The company asked the Commission to confirm that the change of name does not affect the right of the company to benefit from the individual duty rate applied to the company under its previous name. The Commission has examined the information supplied and concluded that the change of name in no way affects the findings of Implementing Regulation 796/2012.

Dates: The notice was published in the Official Journal on 31 March 2017.


Commodity: crystalline silicon photovoltaic modules (‘modules’) and key components (i.e. cells and wafers). For a detailed description please see Article 1 of Commission Implementing Regulation 2017/366 or Commission Implementing Regulation 2017/367.  

Countries/Economies: The Chinese mainland.

Action: On 31 March 2017, the Official Journal published Commission Implementing Decision 2017/615 accepting a proposal by a group of exporting producers together with the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronic Products (CCCME) concerning the implementation of the undertaking referred to in Implementing Decision 2013/707/EU. On the basis of the provisions of the undertaking, the exporting producers together with the CCCME requested consultations with the Commission on 6 March 2017. The exporting producers and the CCCME argued that the minimum import price (MIP) should be maintained at its current level until the completion of an ongoing partial interim review (the Commission has initiated a partial interim review on the form of measures by a Notice of Initiation published in the Official Journal on 3 March 2017). On the basis of the notification by the exporting producers and the CCCME, the Commission considers it appropriate to accept the proposed freeze of the MIP until the completion of the ongoing partial interim review. The Commission notes that the proposal to maintain the MIP at the level applicable in March 2017 for the undertaking accepted from the exporting producers listed in the Annex to Implementing Decision 2013/707/EU, as subsequently amended, together with the CCCME, in connection with the anti-dumping and anti-subsidy proceedings concerning imports of crystalline silicon photovoltaic modules and key components (i.e. cells) originating in or consigned from the Chinese mainland pending the conclusion of the partial interim review initiated by the Commission, has been accepted.

Date: The Decision entered into force on the day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.
