Dark days ahead as EU Commission discloses intention to impose duties

The Commission has sent the disclosure document for the anti-dumping proceedings to all interested parties, including the European Collective of Importers of Electric Bicycles. This document does not hold a final decision yet, but outlines what the Commission intends to do.

In the disclosure document, the Commission is announcing the imposition of anti-dumping duties as listed in the table at the end of this article.

With that, the Commission intends to accept EBMA’s request to withdraw registration and therefore not to pursue the retro-active collection of duties. However, this will only be 100% confirmed when the final Regulation on the case is published.

Provisional duties will be collected from 18 July onwards, but only to the level of proposed duties, which is lower than the provisional duties.

All interested parties can send comments to the Commission on this disclosure document until 12 o’clock on 26 November.

The Collective of European Importers of Electric Bicycles will comment on the content of this disclosure document upon careful analysis. However, the Collective already wishes to state now that if the Commission is to go ahead with the proposed anti-dumping duties, this will exacerbate the damage already done to European importers and mark the start of dark days for the whole European electric bicycle sector and for all EU citizens who are using or intend to use an electric bike.
