BRUSSELS, Belgium - The European Union has implemented a new anti-dumping duty. Earlier this year, Bike Europe already published the European Commission’s proposal to levy a 85% anti-dumping duty on iron or steel ‘fasteners’ (screws and bolts) originating in China. This new anti-dumping duties is effective as of 26 January 2009.
Although the European Commission did send a proposal for ‘Imposing a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of certain iron or steel fasteners originating in the People’s Republic of China’ to the European Council already on January 6th, it took more than 3 weeks before the final decision came through.
