Ongoing AD measures

Ferro-Silicon

PRC:

Erdos Xijin Kuangye Co., Ltd 15.6%
Lanzou Good Land Ferroalloy Factory Co. Ltd 29%
All other companies 31.2%


Russia:

Bratsk Ferroalloy Plant 17.8%
All other companies 22.7%


The measures were due to expire on 28 February 2013. However, EUROALLIAGES successfully lodged a sunset review request end of November 2012. Further to that request, an expiry review investigation was opened end of February 2013. The findings of the Commission were such that the decision was made to renew the current anti-dumping measures on FeSi imports originating in China and Russia. According to the rules, the level of the duties remained unchanged (see above).

Commission Implementing Regulation n° 360/2014 renewing the AD duty on FeSi originating in the PR China and Russia was published on the 9th of April 2014 . This Regulation here attached entered into force  on 11 April 2014 and will remain in force for 5 years.


Silicon

PRC:

Datong Jinneng Industrial Silicon Co., Pingwang Industry Garden, Datong, Shanxi 16.3%
All other companies  16.8%


The regulation (in attachment) has been published on 5 July 2016 and will be in force for the next 5 years.

The regulation establishes that the extension of the AD measures on Chinese silicon to imports consigned from the Republic of Korea, by virtue of Council Regulation (EC) No 42/2007, and to imports consigned from Taiwan, by virtue of Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 311/2013, should also be maintained.

In fact, an anti-circumvention investigation against Taiwan was initiated in July 2012. The outcome of the investigtion fully confirmed EUROALLIAGES' allegations: the Silicon metal customs cleared as Taiwanese was in fact Chinese and hence the AD duty imposed on Chinese Silicon was extended to Silicon with allegedly Taiwanese origin.

The Regulation was published on 5 April 2013 in the Official Journal of the European Union and entered into force on the day after, 6 April 2013.

The Regulation is attached.
