On 12.04.2017, the European Commission launched an interim review to review the existing anti-dumping duty on tableware and other ceramic articles for table or kitchen use from China. The investigation could end with a partial lifting of the anti-dumping measure. Interested parties should now participate in the investigation procedure.
Anti-dumping duty on tableware from China
The measures currently in force are a definitive anti-dumping duty imposed by the implementing Regulation (EU) No 412/2013.
The measure concerns tableware and other ceramic articles for table or kitchen use – except ceramic knives, ceramic spice mills and their ceramic grinding parts, ceramic peelers, Ceramic knife sharpeners and cordierite ceramic pizza stones of the kind used for baking pizza or bread – originating in the PRC, which at the time were classified under TARIC codes 6911100090, 6912001011, 6912001091, 6912003010, 6912005010 and 6912009010.
Subject of the interim review
The Commission has received sufficient prima facie evidence to show that certain products differ significantly from the dumped products. These are[bold] planes, graters, scissors, scrapers, grinders and coffee grinders made of ceramic[/bold].
The investigation could end with the retroactive abolition[/bold] of the anti-dumping duty on these products.
Participation of interested parties
All interested parties, in particular EU importers, have the possibility of participating in the procedure within certain time limits. The process is expected to be completed in 15 months.
