EU: Punitive tariff on bicycles from China goes into the next round

Last Thursday (August 29), in the Official Journal of the European Union - see Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1379 of August 28, 2019 - both the continuation of the existing anti-dumping duty on imports of conventional bicycles (= without motor) originating from lashed in the People's Republic of China and also to include bicycle imports from the following countries - "whether or not registered as products of origin from these countries". In this regard, however, only bicycles produced in the PR China that can be shown to have reached the EU via Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Tunisia, Cambodia, Pakistan and the Philippines are affected. This decision was made following an expiry review in accordance with Article 11 (2) of Regulation (EU) 2016/1036.

A quick look back: on March 5, 2018, the European Bicycle Manufacturers Association (EBMA) submitted an application to initiate a review as part of the impending expiry of the EU punitive tariffs on bicycles from the PRC. On June 4, 2018, the responsible EU Commission initiated the review "because of the impending expiry of the current anti-dumping measures against imports of bicycles originating in the PRC". Said investigation covered the period from April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018.
This led to the following conclusion: »The Commission concluded that dumping continued during the review investigation period and that there is no evidence that such dumping will cease in the future. «
It is a fact that during the review investigation period it was shown that Chinese goods were still being imported into the Union market at dumping prices. Since an expiry of the anti-dumping measures would likely lead to a continuation of dumping, the EU will continue to insist on its existing punitive tariff of 48.5 percent on bicycle goods from the PRC. It is now going into the next five-year round. You can find out which exceptions there are on page 52 of the present Implementing Regulation L225 (see https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/HTML/?uri=OJ:L:2019:225:F ...).
In addition to the extension of the existing EU punitive tariff on bicycles from the PRC, bicycles produced in China that reach the EU via Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Tunisia, Cambodia, Pakistan and the Philippines, are to be given an EU Penalty tariffs are documented. Here, too, there are exceptions or exemptions, which can be found on page 53 of the Implementing Regulation L225.
