In 2011, Studio Bandera, on behalf of the international association of aluminium radiators manufacturers, AIRAL Scrl, filed an anti-dumping complaint relative to the imports into the EU of aluminium heating radiators originating in the People’s Republic of China.
On 29th October 2012, the European Commission upheld Studio Banderas’ complaint by imposing anti-dumping duty for the duration of five years.
In June 2017, in preparation for the expiry of the anti-dumping duty, Studio Bandera assumed again the defence of the international association of aluminium radiators manufacturers, AIRAL Scrl, by preparing a complex motion for the duty renewal in order to prevent the risk of recurrence of injury to the Union Industry.
On 9th November 2017, the European Commission accepted Studio Bandera’s motion for renewal of the anti-dumping duty with notice no. 2017/C 377/11. Following this, a notice of initiation of an expiry review of measures applicable to imports of certain types of aluminum radiators originating in the People’s Republic of China was published in the Official Journal of the European Union.
The investigation into the persistence or reiteration of dumping will cover the period from 1st October 2016, to 30th September 2017, and will be concluded within a maximum period of 15 months from the date of publication (9th November 2017) of the above notice in the Official Journal of the European Union.
