What is anti-dumping?

Countries may apply anti-dumping measures against imports of a product at an export price below its ‘normal value’ (usually the price of the product in the domestic market of the exporting country) if such dumped imports cause injury to a domestic industry.

What are legal acts concerning anti-dumping duties?

It is Agreement on Implementation of Article VI (Anti-dumping) of General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). In the EU, it is Regulation (EU) 2016/1036 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 8 June 2016 on protection against dumped imports from countries not members of the European Union.

How the proceedings can be initiated in the EU?

An investigation shall be initiated upon a written complaint by any natural or legal person, acting on behalf of the Union industry. The complaint may be submitted to the Commission or to a Member State, which shall forward it to the Commission.

How anti-dumping duties are imposed?

Anti-dumping duties are imposed by regulation, published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJ), for example, Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/926 of 15 June 2022 imposing a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of tubes and pipes of ductile cast iron (also known as spheroidal graphite cast iron) originating in India.

How long an anti-dumping measure remains in force?

An anti-dumping measure shall remain in force only as long as, and to the extent that, it is necessary to counteract the dumping which is causing injury. A definitive anti-dumping measure shall expire five years from its imposition, for example, see the Notice of the expiry of certain anti-dumping measures published in the OJ C 369 (27.9.2022). 

Where can I check if the product I plan to import into the EU is subject to an anti-dumping duty?

Use the TARIC database for this purpose.

One car for me, another one for the state - import taxes in Israel
30-10-2022

An excellent article published in CCRM about one year ago reviewed the main import taxes in Brazil, the EU and Ukraine and the means and basis of calculation. The article demonstrated that, in some cases, the import taxes exceed the value of the goods themselves, meaning that the taxes are more than 100%. I may comment that, in my view, the State of Israel is kind of a pioneer in this field. In several sectors, Israel imposes very high import taxes, especially on passenger cars, where the taxes exceed the value of a car.

Knowing how provisions of one or another customs and tax legislation are applied, protects business from financial and time losses intended for the resolution of disputes in courts. In this review of the judgement of the Court of Justice of the European Union, we draw attention to the aspects related to excise duty and VAT debt for goods illegally imported into the EU from the third countries - whether it is extinguished together with the import duty debt.

Alcohol turned into water in a customs warehouse: who pays the customs bill?
28-08-2022

A customs warehouse stored bottled alcohol (vodka). Customs audited the warehouse, took a sample, and found that there was water instead of vodka in the bottles! Customs ordered the warehouse to pay €308,455 customs debt (import duties and taxes, fines and interest). A dispute arose regarding who must pay the customs debt, as the customs warehouse is not obliged to take samples of the goods. Let's look at the clarification of the Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania (SACL) in this case.
