CATEGORIES: Anti-dumping investigation; iron and steel industry
LEGAL COUNSEL: AllBright Law Offices represented the China Chamber of International Commerce in presenting a no injury defense.
KEY POINTS: In June 2017, the EU launched an anti-dumping investigation on low carbon ferrochrome products originating from China, Russia and Turkey. The China Chamber of International Commerce actively organized the entire industry in presenting a defense. Under the efforts of numerous parties, the EU officially terminated the investigation in July 2018.
AllBright stated that the legal team approached the issues from such aspects as the scope of the products being investigated, the state of the EU industry and the interests of the EU, putting forward a powerful defense, in particular, using information of the complainants that is publicly available to substantiate that the state of the industry in the EU countries was a consequence arising from their own market-based price revision policies, thereby ultimately compelling the complainants to withdraw their complaint and the EU to terminate the investigation.
Furthermore, AllBright explained that, against a background where obstacles are being erected around the world against the Chinese iron and steel industry, this was the only EU anti-dumping investigation in the last three years in which China achieved a complete victory.
