New Phase in Anti-Dumping Proceeding to Start Next Week

BRUSSELS, Belgium – On March 19th, the notice of the impending expiry of anti-dumping measures on bicycles and parts imported from China and Vietnam into the European Union has been published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

The European Bicycle Manufacturers Association (EBMA) will submit a request for a review of the duties. With that a new phase in the complicated anti-dumping procedure will start.

According to that procedure the EBMA must submit the review request next week; before April 15. If a substantiated review request is received, the Commission publishes a Notice of Initiation and begins investigating whether dumping and injury are likely to continue or recur. This Notice has not been published yet in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Normally, expiry reviews are completed within 12 months, but they may take up to 15 months. An expiry review can result only in the withdrawal or continuation of the duties in force. If measures are maintained, they will normally remain in force for another five years. An expiry review cannot lead to a change in the level or form of the duties; these can only be changed by an interim review.
