The European Commission (EC) has announced that it has ordered the registration of hot rolled (HR) stainless steel sheets and coils imports from China, Taiwan and Indonesia, so that measures may subsequently be applied against those imports from the date of such registration.

The registration request was made by the European Steel Association (EUROFER), suggesting that registration is justified as the product concerned continues to be dumped and that importers were well aware of dumping practices which stretched over an extended period of time and were causing injury to the EU industry.

The antidumping investigation was launched in August 2019 following the application lodged by EUROFER.

The products subject to antidumping duty investigation currently fall under Customs Tariff Statistics Position Numbers 7219 11, 7219 12, 7219 13, 7219 14, 7219 22, 7219 23, 7219 24, 7220 11 and 7220 12.

The European Commission (EC) is scheduled to decide whether to introduce provisional anti-dumping duties on imports of HR stainless steel from the three countries on or about April 12, 2020.
