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.
