LEVA-EU Start Dumping Injury Survey and informs on dumping case at Eurobike
BRUSSELS, Belgium – “The European Commission’s decision to register imports of e-bikes from China has caused great injury to companies,” reports the Collective of European Importers of Electric Bicycles. “Not only to the members of the collective but to many more SMEs throughout Europe.”
“The uncertainty about potential retroactive collection of duties and the level of potential duties is causing enormous chaos,” said the Collective. Therefore on behalf of the Collective, LEVA-EU launches a survey to measure the injury.
“Should the European Commission pursue the 189% duties as mentioned in the Registration Regulation, this will force many companies to close or to go bankrupt. The Registration Regulation is currently resulting in shortage of electric bike supplies, price increases and considerable losses.”
The Collective of European Importers of Electric Bicycles wants to show to the Commission how many companies are affected and to what extent the Registration Regulation has and still is causing damage. Anybody affected by the anti-dumping proceeding in general, and the Registration Regulation in particular, is invited to help the Collective to show the European Commission the level of injury this is causing by completing a short survey.
Meeting at Eurobike
LEVA-EU is organising an information meeting at Eurobike on the dumping case open to all interested parties. LEVA-EU Manager, Annick Roetynck, will present an overview of what has happened so far and what is still to happen: the procedure, registration, retroactive collection, provisional duties, decision on final duties.
