European Aluminium appeals against anti-dumping suspension
The association of European aluminium producers, European Aluminium (EA), has filed two complaints with the European General Court on 17 December 2021. The actions are against the nine-month suspension of anti-dumping duties on Chinese aluminium flat rolled products.
The European aluminium producers say the suspension of the trade defence measure is unjustified and that it is having an injurious effect. Among other things, EA cites a strong increase in import volumes of aluminium flat rolled products.
