Brussels, 16 November 2020 – The European Steel Federation (EUROFER) has welcomed the start of the registration of Turkish imports of hot rolled steel. This could potentially lead to the retroactive application of anti-dumping duties normally foreseen for January 2021.
In view of the rules laid down in the basic trade defence regulation, the registration of imports is a prerequisite for the retroactive application of anti-dumping duties to possible provisional duties in January. Registration helps to avoid opportunistic import surges before the imposition of subsequent duties. Virtually all imports entering the EU from Turkey after November 14, 2020, could be subject to anti-dumping duties in the future.
“Anti-dumping procedures are slow and time-consuming to implement”
“Anti-dumping procedures are slow and time-consuming to implement,” said Axel Eggert, Director General of EUROFER. “While the fourteen-month investigation is ongoing, imports will remain volatile and may quickly disrupt the EU market. Registration is therefore a crucial tool to ensure the effectiveness of the EU’s trade defence instruments”.
The application for registration was submitted by EUROFER in September 2020, following an anti-dumping complaint filed in May 2020. This anti-dumping case should lead to conclusions in January 2020.
