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.

    Van Bael & Bellis successfully assists Giant Electric Vehicle Kunshan (“GEV”) in obtaining the annulment of the EU anti-dumping and countervailing duties on e-bikes from China

    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.
