EU Skips India/Indonesia Stainless Duty, Imposes Electrode Duty
The EU has decided not to impose anti-subsidy duties on imports of stainless steel cold-rolled flat products originating in India and Indonesia. This goes against the expectations of European steelmakers’ association Eurofer.
In May, the EU imposed 13.6-34.6% anti-dumping duties on imports of stainless steel cold-rolled flat products from India and Indonesia, a move which Eurofer welcomed, adding that it expects anti-subsidy measures to follow (see Kallanish passim).
Separately, the EU has imposed a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports from China of graphite electrodes used for electric furnaces falling under HS code 8545 11 00. The duty rates applicable to the net, free-at-Union-frontier price, before duty, are 17.5-66.5%, depending on company (see table).
