The EU plans to formally begin to levy anti-dumping duties on Chinese aluminum sheets, strips and foils

On October 11, 2021, the European Commission issued a final ruling on anti-dumping of Chinese aluminum sheet, strip and foil products, finding that the dumping margin of the products involved was 14.3% to 24.6%, and announced that the implementation of anti-dumping measures would be suspended for 9 months. On March 9, 2022, the European Commission consulted European stakeholders on the need for a further extension of the moratorium, and collected information on EU market damage.

After analysis and evaluation, the European Commission believes that although there are still uncertainties in the market, the statutory conditions for suspending anti-dumping measures are no longer met, and on May 25, 2022, the European Commission announced that it intends to start anti-dumping measures after the 9-month extension expires. China’s decision to levy anti-dumping duties on related products, that is, it is planned to resume anti-dumping measures after July 12, 2022.

According to the announcement of the final ruling of the European Commission, during the investigation period of this case (from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020), the EU imported 170,000 tons of products involved in the case from China, and the average unit price of imported products was 2,235 euros per ton.
