Anti-dumping Actions

Commodity: ferro-chromium, containing by weight more than 0.05% but not more than 0.5% of carbon, currently falling within CN code 7202 49 50.

Countries/Economies: The Chinese mainland, Russia and Turkey

Action: On 23 June 2017, the Official Journal published a notice of initiation of an anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports of Low Carbon Ferro-Chrome. The European Commission has received a complaint alleging that imports of Low Carbon Ferro-Chrome, originating in the abovementioned countries, are being dumped and are thereby causing material injury to the Union industry. The complaint was lodged on 10 May 2017 by the Association of European ferro-alloy producers (‘Euroalliages’) on behalf of the sole EU producer of Low Carbon Ferro-Chrome in the Union, Elektrowerk Weisweiler GmbH (‘the complainant’). The complainant is said to represent 100% of Union production of Low Carbon Ferro-Chrome. The complainant has provided evidence alleging that imports of the product under investigation from the countries concerned have increased overall in absolute terms and in terms of market share. The prima facie evidence provided by the complainant allegedly shows that the volume and the prices of the imported product under investigation have had, among other consequences, a negative impact on the quantities sold, the level of prices charged and the market share held by the Union industry, resulting in substantial adverse effects on the overall performance of the Union industry. The Commission envisages using the sampling procedure. For full details, please view the notice of initiation.

Dates: Subject to the provisions of the notice, all interested parties have been invited to make their views known, submit information and provide supporting evidence. Unless otherwise specified, this information and supporting evidence must reach the Commission within 37 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, with any requests to be heard to be made in writing specifying the reasons for the request. For hearings on issues pertaining to the initial stage of the investigation the request must be submitted within 15 days of the date of publication of the notice. Thereafter, a request to be heard must be submitted within the specific deadlines set by the Commission in its communication with the parties. The investigation will be concluded within 15 months of the date of the publication of the notice. Provisional measures may be imposed no later than nine months from the publication of the notice.
