Agressive Customs’ Actions against EU E-Bike Companies
39 days ago
Some time ago LEVA-EU has launched and appeal to report customs’ actions against e-bike companies. We have since received several reports on a variety of actions against European electric bicycle companies.
The allegations are quite diverse but include among other things:
Buying from a European supplier who is suspected of circumventing anti-dumping duties on electric bicycles from China
Using incorrect HS codes to avoid anti-circumvention duties on bicycle components
Illegal application of rules of origin for e-bikes that are produced outside the EU and China
These reports have allowed us to get a clearer picture of the situation. We are currently taking legal advice as to how to respond to these actions. In the meantime, we herewith repeat our appeal. The more cases known to us, the better we can assess the situation and respond accurately.
We are therefore calling again on European electric bike companies that have recently experienced a similar customs’ action, to report this to LEVA-EU. We do of course guarantee anonymity.
Cases can be reported by phoning or mailing LEVA-EU Manager Annick Roetynck: +32 475 500 58, [email protected]
