EU Anti-Dumping Proceedings Electric Bicycles from China: Important Deadlines

On 20th October, the European Commission has published a notice of initiation of an anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports of electric bicycles originating in the People’s Republic of China, which you will find here: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=CELEX:52017XC1020(01)

LEVA-EU believes it is important for all stakeholders, both EU producers and importers of electric bicycles, to be informed on the procedure and the relating deadlines. That is why we have listed below the essential deadlines for all interested parties to make themselves known to the Commission.

  • By 4 November: contact the Commission as an EU producer if you consider you should be included in the EU producers’ sample
  • By 4 November: all European importers buying the product under investigation from Chinese suppliers, but not related to those Chinese companies, should make themselves known to the Commission by completing Annex II of the Notice. The definition of “(un)related” is in footnote 1 of page 22 of the Notice.
  • By 4 November: all producers exporting from China or representatives acting on their behalf, should make themselves known to the Commission and provide the information requested in Annex I of the Notice, which includes a declaration to claim an individual dumping margin should the Commission impose anti-dumping duties.
  • By 4 November: comments on the choice of Switzerland as an analogue country or arguments for another analogue country to be sent to the Commission.
  • By 4 November: deadline for requests to be heard on issues pertaining to the initial stage of the investigation
  • By 10 November: deadline for interested parties wishing to submit any relevant information regarding the selection of the sample other than the information requested through Annex I from exporting producers
  • By 10 November: deadline for interested parties wishing to submit any relevant information regarding the selection of the sample other than the information requested through Annex II from unrelated importers
  • By 10 November: deadline for interested parties wishing to submit any relevant information regarding the selection of the sample of EU producers.
