EU Initiates Review Investigation of Anti-Dumping Measures on Imports of Truck Tyres from China
The EC has announced that a Coalition of companies that consider themselves injured on behalf of the European Union (EU) industry lodged, on 19 July, a request for a review to initiate a review investigation of the anti-dumping measures on imports of trucks from China, considering that if the measures were terminated there would be a likelihood of continuation or recurrence of injury from China.
The investigation period will cover two stages and will be concluded within a maximum of 12 to 15 months
In this regard, the EC has initiated the review of the measure and the investigation will cover the period from 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023 and the analysis of the relevant trends to assess the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of injury covering the period from 1 January 2020 up to the end of the review investigation period.
Thus, the investigation will, as a general rule, be concluded within 12 months from the date of publication of this notice and, in any event, no later than 15 months from that date, where the EC will determine whether the expiry of the measures would be likely to result in a continuation or recurrence of dumping under review originating in China, and a continuation or recurrence of injury to the EU industry.
ADINE has therefore immediately informed its members of the said decision and has made the necessary consultations and approaches to the competent bodies in order to know the possible effects of the said decision, and will inform and will promptly inform all its members of any communication or notification received from the Commission of the proceeding in question.
However, ADINE already announced at its recent V Forum “Changes that bring about change”, held on 28 September at IFEMA, that this measure was likely to be carried out before the deadline expires.
