EU imposes anti-dumping duties on iron castings from China
Issued at 2018-02-05
The European Commission has set definitive anti-dumping duties on iron castings imported from China, in a latest trade measure against the country.
The duties range from 15.5 percent to 38.1 percent on the imports, which are a family of products that include for instance manhole covers and grates used in street drainage, according to the European Union's official journal on Tuesday.
An investigation was initiated in December 2016 following a complaint from seven EU producers concerning products from China and India. The investigation found there to be no dumping in the case of India.
The EU applied anti-dumping measures for the same product imported from China already in the past between 2005 and 2011.
The definitive duties are lower than the provisional duties, set in August 2017, of between 25.3 and 42.8 percent.
The Commission has 53 measures now in place on steel and iron products, including 27 on products coming from China.
A spokesperson with China's Ministry of Commerce said last week that the country is against abuse of trade measures such as anti-dumping duties.
