The Bandera Firm, on behalf of the international association of aluminum radiator manufacturers, AIRAL Scrl, 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 antidumping tariff (http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal- content/IT/TXT/PDF/?uri=OJ:L:2012:310:FULL&from=IT ) for a period of five (5) years.

In June 2017, in anticipation of the expiration of the Antidumping Tariff, the Bandera Firm again assumed the defense of the international association of aluminum radiator manufacturers, AIRAL Scrl, preparing a complex application for renewal of the tariff in order to avert the risk of recurrence of injury to the Union Industry.

On November 9, 2017, the European Commission granted the Bandera Firm’s application for renewal of the Antidumping Tariff 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. (http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal- content/IT/TXT/PDF/?uri=OJ:C:2017:377:FULL&from=IT).

The investigation into the persistence or recurrence of dumping will cover the period from October 1, 2016, to September 30, 2017, and will be concluded within a maximum period of 15 months from the date of publication (November 9, 2017) of the above notice in the Official Journal of the European Union.
