EU confirms duties on certain electrical steel imports

The European Commission has confirmed the extension of existing anti-dumping duties on certain grain-oriented electrical steel (GOES) imports from China, Japan, Korea, Russia and the US, Kallanish learns from the Official Journal of the European Union.

A review of the measures was launched last year. As a consequence of the extension, measures imposed back in 2015 will remain in place, with ad valorem duties ranging between 21.5% and 39% on imports of grain-oriented flat-rolled products of silicon-electrical steel from the included countries.

In this case, the duties will be applied only on the difference between the sale prices and a set minimum import price established for each provenance and quality. If the sale price is below the minimum set level, no duties will be collected.
