The European Commission (EC) has imposed a definitive countervailing duty (CVD) on imports of certain organic coated steel (OSC) products originating from China. The investigation of the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of subsidisation covered the period from January 1, 2017, to December 31, 2017.

The product concerned by this expiry review is the same as the one in the original investigation, that is certain organic coated steel products, i.e., flat-rolled products of non-alloy and alloy steel (not including stainless steel) which are painted, varnished or coated with plastics on at least one side, excluding so-called 'sandwich panels' of a kind used for building applications and consisting of two outer metal sheets with a stabilising core of insulation material sandwiched between them, excluding those products with a final coating of zinc-dust (a zinc-rich paint, containing by weight 70 percent or more of zinc), and excluding those products with a substrate with a metallic coating of chromium or tin; currently falling within CN codes ex 7210 70 80, ex 7212 40 80, ex 7225 99 00, ex 7226 99 70 (TARIC codes 7210708011, 7210708091, 7212408001, 7212408021, 7212408091, 7225990011, 7225990091, 7226997011 and 7226997091), and originating in China.

At the end of its investigation, the EC concluded that there are no compelling reasons of European Union interest against the maintenance of the definitive countervailing measures on imports of OCS originating in China.

The rate of the definitive countervailing duty applicable to the net, free-at-EU-frontier price before duty, of the product is comprised between 13.7 percent and 44.7 percent.
