EU lifts anti-dumping measures against imports of steel wire ropes from Ukraine while imports from China will be investigated further

On 8 February 2017, the European Union formally confirmed the expiry of the anti-dumping measures in place since 1999 against imports of steel wire ropes originating in Ukraine, as no substantiated request for a review of these measures was filed by the EU domestic industry. The expiry review investigation, which was also initiated on 8 February 2017, will now focus solely on the anti-dumping measures against Chinese imports of steel wire ropes in order to determine whether these measures should be extended for an additional period of five years.  

Van Bael & Bellis has been assisting the sole Ukrainian producer of steel wire ropes, Stalkanat-Silur, since 2014, and last year successfully secured a reduction of the anti-dumping measures from 51.8% to 10.5%.

Stalkanat-Silur was assisted by Van Bael & Bellis partner Yuriy Rudyuk and associate Sergiy Beketov.
