Ongoing AD measures
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.
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.
