The new EU anti-dumping methodology and other upcoming changes to the EU anti-dumping rules

  • 20/12/2017
  • News

The new EU anti-dumping methodology was published in the Official Journal on 19 December 2017. Regulation (EU) 2017/2321 sets out new rules for establishing normal value in case of “significant distortions” in the market of the exporting country.

In a related development, on 5 December 2017, the Commission, the Council and the European Parliament reached a political agreement on the modernisation of the EU's trade defence instruments, addressing, amongst other matters, the partial waiver of the lesser-duty rule (LDR), the relevance of social and environmental standards in anti-dumping investigations and the issue of “pre-disclosure”.

While these two sets of amendments were agreed upon independently and result from different necessities and political motives, together they constitute a major overhaul of the EU’s existing anti-dumping rules.

    Van Bael & Bellis successfully assists Italian exporters in obtaining the repeal of the Australian anti-dumping measures on imports of prepared or preserved tomatoes from Italy

    Van Bael & Bellis successfully assisted three Italian exporters (Attianese, Mutti, and Princes) in obtaining the repeal of anti-dumping measures imposed by the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission on imports of prepared or preserved tomatoes from Italy. This result was achieved in a sunset review in which the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission decided that the anti-dumping duties of up to 17.6% applicable to imports of tomatoes from Italy should be repealed as it determined that there is no likelihood of continuation or recurrence of injurious dumping for the product concerned in the future, Attianese, Mutti, and Princes were assisted by Van Bael & Bellis partner Gabriele Coppo. The Anti-Dumping Notice was published today on the website of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission.

    Van Bael & Bellis secures the repeal of the anti-dumping measures applicable to imports of steel tube or pipe fittings originating in Turkey

    Van Bael & Bellis successfully assisted Turkey’s largest fittings producer RSA in the framework of the expiry review initiated by the European Commission concerning the anti-dumping measures applicable to imports of fittings originating in Turkey, South Korea, Russia and Malaysia. Imports of Turkish fittings have been subject to anti-dumping duties as high as 16.7% of the customs value for the last five years. At the end of the expiry review, the Commission determined that the Turkish producers had not engaged in dumping during the review investigation period, and concluded that there is no likelihood of recurrence of dumping in the future should measures against Turkey be repealed. While Turkish-origin fittings will thus be imported into the EU free of duty as from tomorrow, the anti-dumping duties ranging between 23.8-75% applicable to imports originating in South Korea, Russia and Malaysia will remain in force for another period of five years. RSA was assisted by Van Bael & Bellis partner Fabrizio Di Gianni and associate Aytaç Celebi. The Commission’s implementing regulation was published in today’s Official Journal.
