Van Bael & Bellis successfully assists Stalkanat-Silur, the sole Ukrainian producer of steel wire ropes and cables, in reducing an anti-dumping duty in the EU from 51.8% to 10.5%

The Van Bael & Bellis trade team successfully secured the reduction of the anti-dumping measures for the Ukrainian producer in the framework of an interim review investigation initiated by the Commission in November 2014 further to a request filed by the team on behalf of Stalkanat-Silur.

The review investigation was complicated due to a number of legal aspects, including the absence of export sales to the EU as well as significantly different levels of trade on the domestic and export markets. The European Commission accepted most of the legal arguments raised by the team which led to a significant reduction of the anti-dumping duty for the Ukrainian company.

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

    European Commission publishes proposal for an EU-wide forced labour products ban

    On 14 September 2022, the European Commission published its legislative proposal for a Regulation prohibiting products made with forced labour on the European Union market. This comes precisely one year after the European Commission first announced the forced labour products ban initiative and follows the publication of the European Commission’s Decent Work Communication. The Proposal sets out a general prohibition on economic operators to make available on the EU market or export from the European Union products made, in whole or in part, with forced labour. If adopted, EU Member States will be required to directly detain, seize or order the withdrawal of any product made with forced labour at any stage of that product’s supply chain.
