Imposing of a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of steel road wheels originating in the People's Republic of China

The European Commission recently published the Regulation (EU) no. 353/2020 imposing a definitive anti-dumping duty and definitively collecting the provisional duty imposed on imports of steel road wheels originating in the People's Republic of China.

Regulation provides a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of wheels of steel originating in the People’s Republic of China, designed for use on the road, whether or not with their accessories and whether or not fitted with tyres, designed for:

  • road tractors;
  • motor vehicles for the transport of persons and/or the transport of goods;
  • special purpose motor vehicles (for example, fire fighting vehicles, spraying lorries);
  • trailers or semi-trailers, not mechanically propelled, of the above listed vehicles.

 

The following products are excluded:

  • road wheels of steel for the industrial assembly of pedestrian-controlled tractors currently falling under subheading 8701 10;
  • wheels for road quad bikes;
  • wheel centres in star form, cast in one piece, of steel;
  • wheels for motor vehicles, specifically designed for uses other than on public roads;
  • wheels for passenger car trailers and for caravans, not mechanically propelled, with a rim diameter of not more than 16 inches;
  • wheels for trailers or semi-trailers, specifically designed for uses other than on public roads.
 

The applicable anti-dumping duty is 66.4%.

In the case of imports from the companies listed in Regulation (EU) no. 353/2020 the anti-dumping duty is 50.3% provided that the commercial invoice includes the standard declaration provided in the Regulation.

Moreover, the amounts secured by way of the provisional anti-dumping duty under Regulation (EU) no. 1693/2019 shall be definitively collected.

 

How does the above influence the activity of your company?

If imported steel wheels for road use, originating in People's Republic of China is recommended to analyze the implications of the new regulations.
