COM (2009) 117 – Proposal a regulation amendment on imposing a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of certain castings originating in the People's Republic of China
By Regulation (EC) No 1212/2005, the Council imposed a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports into the Community of castings of non-malleable cast iron of a kind used to cover and/or give access to ground or sub-surface systems, and parts thereof, whether or not machined, coated or painted or fitted with other materials, excluding fire hydrants, originating in China.
Six companies have requested to be granted 'New Exporting Producer Treatment' (NEPT). Following investigations carried out by the Commission to verify whether these companies qualified for this treatment, it was established that one Chinese exporting producer, Weifang Stable Casting provided sufficient evidence to prove that it meets all the four criteria requested. In consideration of the findings of the investigation, it is concluded that the company Weifang Stable Casting should be added to the list of companies individually mentioned under Article 1(2) of Council Regulation (EC) No 1212/2005 with a duty rate of 28,6%. Hence this proposal to amend the Regulation so as to include Weifang Stable Casting in the list therein.
