BRUSSELS, Belgium (September 11) – The European Commission recommends the member states to impose 11.3% dumping duty on internal gear hubs from Shimano. The European Commission proposes this in its recently published ‘Final Disclosure Document’.
After the European Commission decided not to impose provisional anti-dumping duties on Shimano’s internal gear hubs, which was stated in its April 27 dated preliminary findings, there has been carried out an extensive further consultation of all parties involved in the dumping charges that SRAM brought forward against Shimano. The conclusion of the further consultation and the anticipated consequences for European bicycle makers is that, “Measures are expected to re-establish fair and effective competition on the Community market, merely correcting the distorting effects of the injurious dumping practised by the Japanese exporting producer.”
The EC’s Final Disclosure Document also states that an injury margin of 11.3% has been calculated. It is fair to assume that the European Commission will recommend imposing a dumping duty with the same percentage. It is expected that the EU Member states will make a decision by the end of September after which the European Commission will issue its final verdict before October 28. (JO)
