Commission imposes measures on cast iron products from China

The Commission has today imposed definitive anti-dumping duties on iron castings from China. The measures range from 15.5% to 38.1%.

The Commission has 53 measures now in place on steel and iron products, including 27 on products coming from China.

Cast iron castings are a family of products that include manhole covers and grates used in street drainage. The market for castings in the European Union is estimated at around €700 million.

The investigation was initiated in December 2016 following a complaint from seven EU producers concerning products from China and India. The investigation found there to be no dumping in the case of India. EU applied anti-dumping measures for the same product imported from China already in the past between 2005 and 2011.
