In two judgments issued on 27 April 2022, the General Court of the European Union annulled the anti-dumping and countervailing duties imposed on e-bikes manufactured by GEV. The General Court found that the price undercutting calculation carried out by the Commission in the context of the anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations was vitiated by a methodological error because the price of the Union producers included certain elements, namely SG&A and profits of their related selling entities, which were not included in the price of GEV used by the Commission. This methodological error led to an unfair price comparison and was liable to call into question the legality of the contested regulations by invalidating the Commission’s entire causation analysis. This has led the General Court to annul the contested regulations in so far as they concern GEV, thereby scrapping the 20.7% anti-dumping and 3.9% countervailing duties applicable to imports of e-bikes from GEV. GEV was represented in the proceedings by managing partner Philippe De Baere and senior associate, Joanna Redelbach. A copy of the judgments is available here and here.
