As represented in a previous article, the Bandera Firm, on behalf of the international association of aluminum radiator manufacturers, AIRAL, filed an Antidumping complaint in 2011 regarding imports into the EU of aluminum heating radiators originating in the People’s Republic of China.

On October 29, 2012, the European Commission upheld the Bandera Firm’s complaint by imposing an anti-dumping tariff for the duration of five (5) years.

In June 2017, in anticipation of the expiration of the Antidumping Tariff, the Bandera Firm again took on the defense of the association AIRAL by preparing a complex application for renewal of the tariff in order to avert the risk of recurrence of injury to the Union Industry.

On January 15, 2019, the Implementing Regulation was published in the Official Journal of the European Union re-imposing an anti-dumping tariff on aluminum radiators, a measure to protect EU production from unfair competition from Chinese companies. The measure exactly replicates the one implemented in 2012 and will still last for five years: the anti-dumping tariff moves in a range of 12.6 percent to 61.4 percent applicable to the net price.
