The European Commission has made some changes to the hot dip galvanized (HDG) quotas in its definitive safeguard measures compared to the first draft sent to the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Accordingly, the quota volumes for the 4a section under coated product category have been reduced, while the quota volumes for the 4b section, which includes HDG products for the automotive industry, have been increased. The biggest change has been seen in the quota volumes allocated for South Korea. On an annual level, the quota volumes for the 4b section have increased by over 600,000 mt in the final measures, compared to the WTO draft.

Products under the 4a section are subject to antidumping duties, while those under the 4b section are not subject to antidumping duties.
