Expiry review of the anti-dumping measures

 Applicable to imports of steel ropes and cables originating of China, Ukraine and South Africa –The anti-dumping measures currently in place on imports of steel ropes and cables originating in the People's Republic of China, Ukraine and South Africa were initially imposed for the first time back in 1999. The Commission is proposing that measures be extended for another term.

The current duty rates are equal to 60.4% for imports originating in China, 51.8% for imports with Ukrainian origin and 38.6% for imports with South African origin.  

Due to circumvention practices, the measures were also extended to imports consigned from the Republic of Korea, Morocco and Moldova.

The product concerned is steel ropes and cables, including locked coil ropes, excluding ropes and cables of stainless steel, with a maximum cross-sectional dimension exceeding 3mm, currently falling within CN codes ex73121081, ex73121083, ex73121085, ex73121089 and ex73121098.

This product is used in various applications ranging from agriculture, fishing and construction (lower-end products) to oil rigging, bridge suspension, mining and elevators (higher-end products).
