Notice of initiation of an anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports of certain seamless pipes and tubes, of iron or steel originating in Croatia, Romania, Russia and Ukraine, of the initiation of an interim review of the anti-dumping duties on imports of certain seamless pipes and tubes of iron or non-alloy steel originating, inter alia , in Russia and Romania and of the initiation of an interim review of the anti-dumping duty on imports of certain seamless pipes and tubes of iron or non-alloy steel originating in Croatia and Ukraine

(2005/C 77/02)

The Commission has received a complaint pursuant to Article 5 of Council Regulation (EC) No 384/96 (1) (‘the basic Regulation’), alleging that imports of certain seamless pipes and tubes, of iron or steel, originating in Croatia, Romania, Russia and Ukraine (‘the countries concerned’), are being dumped and are thereby causing material injury to the Community industry.

1.   Complaint

The complaint was lodged on 14 February 2005 by the Defence Committee of the Seamless Steel Tubes Industry of the European Union (‘the complainant’) on behalf of producers representing a major proportion, in this case more than 50 %, of the total Community production of certain seamless pipes and tubes, of iron or steel.

2.   Product

The product allegedly being dumped is certain seamless pipes and tubes, of iron or steel, of circular cross-section of an external diameter not exceeding 406,4 mm with a Carbon Equivalent Value (CEV) not exceeding 0,86 according to the International Institute of Welding (IIW) formula and chemical analysis originating in Croatia, Romania, Russia and Ukraine (‘the product concerned’), normally declared within CN codes ex 7304 10 10, ex 7304 10 30, ex 7304 21 00, ex 7304 29 11, ex 7304 31 99, ex 7304 39 59, 7304 39 91, 7304 39 93, ex 7304 51 99, ex 7304 59 91 and ex 7304 59 93. These CN codes are only given for information.

This product also includes the product covered by Council Regulations (EC) No 2320/97 and (EC) No 348/2000, which is subject to an interim review as specified under section 10 of this note, i.e. certain seamless pipes and tubes of iron or non-alloy steel originating in Croatia, Romania, Russia and Ukraine and falling within CN Codes 7304 10 10, 7304 10 30, 7304 31 99, 7304 39 91 and 7304 39 93.

3.   Allegation of dumping

The allegation of dumping for Croatia, Romania and Russia is based on a comparison of a constructed normal value with the export prices of the product concerned to the Community.

In view of the provisions of Article 2(7) of the basic Regulation, the complainant established normal value for Ukraine on the basis of a constructed normal value in a market economy country, which is mentioned in paragraph 5.1(d) of this notice. The allegation of dumping is based on a comparison of normal value, thus calculated, with the export prices of the product concerned when sold for export to the Community.

On this basis, the dumping margins calculated are significant for all exporting countries concerned.

4.   Allegation of injury

The complainant has provided evidence that imports of the product concerned from Croatia, Romania, Russia and Ukraine have individually and overall a significant market share in the Community and have even increased in terms of market share.

It is alleged that the volumes and the prices of the imported product concerned have, among other consequences, had a negative impact on the quantities sold and the level of prices charged by the Community industry, resulting in substantial adverse effects on the overall performance, the financial situation and the employment situation of the Community industry.

5.   Procedure

Having determined, after consulting the Advisory Committee, that the complaint has been lodged by or on behalf of the Community industry and that there is sufficient evidence to justify the initiation of a proceeding, the Commission hereby initiates an investigation pursuant to Article 5 of the basic Regulation.

5.1.   Procedure for the determination of dumping and injury

The investigation will determine whether the product concerned originating in Croatia, Romania, Russia and Ukraine is being dumped and whether this dumping has caused injury.

(a)   Sampling

In view of the apparent large number of parties involved in this proceeding, the Commission may decide to apply sampling in accordance with Article 17 of the basic Regulation.

(i)   Sampling for exporters/producers in Russia and Ukraine

In order to enable the Commission to decide whether sampling is necessary and, if so, to select a sample, all exporters/producers, or representatives acting on their behalf, are hereby requested to make themselves known by contacting the Commission and providing the following information on their company or companies within the time limit set in paragraph 6(b)(i) and in the format indicated in paragraph 7 of this notice:

name, address, e-mail address, telephone, and fax, and/or telex numbers and contact person,

the turnover in local currency and the volume in tonnes of the product concerned sold for export to the Community during the period 1 January 2004 to 31 December 2004,

the turnover in local currency and the sales volume in tonnes for the product concerned on the domestic market during the period 1 January 2004 to 31 December 2004,

whether the company intends to claim an individual margin (2) (individual margins can only be claimed by producers),

the precise activities of the company with regard to the production of the product concerned,

the names and the precise activities of all related companies (3) involved in the production and/or selling (export and/or domestic) of the product concerned,

any other relevant information that would assist the Commission in the selection of the sample,

an indication of whether the company or companies agree to their inclusion in the sample, which implies replying to a questionnaire and accepting an on-the-spot investigation of their response.

In order to obtain the information it deems necessary for the selection of the sample of exporters/producers, the Commission will, in addition, contact the authorities of the exporting countries, and any known associations of exporters/producers.

(ii)   Sampling for importers

In order to enable the Commission to decide whether sampling is necessary and, if so, to select a sample, all importers, or representatives acting on their behalf, are hereby requested to make themselves known to the Commission and to provide the following information on their company or companies within the time limit set in paragraph 6(b)(i) and in the formats indicated in paragraph 7 of this notice:

name, address, e-mail address, telephone, and fax, and/or telex numbers and contact person,

the total turnover in euro of the company during the period 1 January 2004 to 31 December 2004,

the total number of employees,

the precise activities of the company with regard to the product concerned,

the volume in tonnes and value in euro of imports into and resales made in the Community market during the period 1 January 2004 to 31 December 2004 of the imported product concerned originating in Croatia, Romania, Russia and Ukraine,

the names and the precise activities of all related companies (3) involved in the production and/or selling of the product concerned,

any other relevant information that would assist the Commission in the selection of the sample,

an indication of whether the company or companies agree to their inclusion in the sample, which implies replying to a questionnaire and accepting an on-the-spot investigation of their response.

In order to obtain the information it deems necessary for the selection of the sample of importers, the Commission will, in addition, contact any known associations of importers.

(iii)   Sampling for Community producers

In view of the large number of Community producers supporting the complaint, the Commission intends to investigate injury to the Community industry by applying sampling.

In order to enable the Commission to select a sample, all Community producers are hereby requested to provide the following information on their company or companies within the time limit set in paragraph 6(b)(i) of this notice:

name, address, e-mail address, telephone, and fax, and/or telex numbers and contact person,

the total turnover in euro of the company during the period 1 January 2004 to 31 December 2004,

the precise activities of the company with regard to the production of the product concerned,

the value in euro of sales of the product concerned made in the Community market during the period 1 January 2004 to 31 December 2004,

the volume in tonnes of sales of the product concerned made in the Community market during the period 1 January 2004 to 31 December 2004,

the volume in tonnes of the production of the product concerned during the period 1 January 2004 to 31 December 2004,

the names and the precise activities of all related companies (3) involved in the production and/or selling of the product concerned,

any other relevant information that would assist the Commission in the selection of the sample,

an indication of whether the company or companies agree to their inclusion in the sample, which implies replying to a questionnaire and accepting an on-the-spot investigation of their response.

(iv)   Final selection of the samples

All interested parties wishing to submit any relevant information regarding the selection of the samples must do so within the time limit set in paragraph 6(b)(ii) of this notice.

The Commission intends to make the final selection of the samples after having consulted the parties concerned that have expressed their willingness to be included in the sample.

Companies included in the samples must reply to a questionnaire within the time limit set in paragraph 6(b)(iii) of this notice and must cooperate within the framework of the investigation.

If sufficient cooperation is not forthcoming, the Commission may base its findings, in accordance with Articles 17(4) and 18 of the basic Regulation, on the facts available. A finding based on facts available may be less advantageous to the party concerned, as explained in paragraph 8 of this notice.

(b)   Questionnaires

In order to obtain the information it deems necessary for its investigation, the Commission will send questionnaires to the sampled Community industry and to any association of producers in the Community, to the sampled exporters/producers in Russia and Ukraine, to the exporters/producers in Croatia and Romania, to any association of exporters/producers, to the sampled importers, to any association of importers named in the complaint, and to the authorities of the exporting countries concerned.

(i)   Exporters/producers in Croatia and Romania and importers

All such interested parties should contact the Commission forthwith by fax, but not later than the time limit set out in paragraph 6(a)(i) of this notice, in order to find out whether they are listed in the complaint and, if necessary, request a questionnaire, given that the time limit set in paragraph 6(a)(ii) of this notice applies to all such interested parties.

(ii)   Exporters/producers claiming an individual margin in Russia and Ukraine

Exporters/producers in Russia and Ukraine claiming an individual margin, with a view to the application of Articles 17(3) and 9(6) of the basic Regulation, must submit a completed questionnaire within the time limit set in paragraph 6(a)(ii) of this notice. They therefore have to request a questionnaire within the time limit set in paragraph 6(a)(i) of this notice. However, such parties should be aware that if sampling is applied to exporters/producers, the Commission may nonetheless decide not to calculate an individual margin for them, if the number of exporters/producers is so large that individual examination would be unduly burdensome and would prevent the timely completion of the investigation.

(c)   Collection of information and holding of hearings

All interested parties are hereby invited to make their views known, submit information other than questionnaire replies and to provide supporting evidence. This information and supporting evidence has to reach the Commission within the time limit set in paragraph 6(a)(ii) of this notice.

Furthermore, the Commission may hear interested parties, provided that they make a request showing that there are particular reasons why they should be heard. This request must be made within the time limit set in paragraph 6(a)(iii) of this notice.

(d)   Selection of the market economy country

In accordance with Article 2(7)(a) of the basic Regulation, it is envisaged to choose Romania as an appropriate market economy country for the purpose of establishing normal value in respect of Ukraine. Interested parties are hereby invited to comment on the appropriateness of this choice within the specific time limit set in paragraph 6(c) of this notice.

(e)   Market economy status

For those exporters/producers in Ukraine who claim and provide sufficient evidence that they operate under market economy conditions, i.e. that they meet the criteria laid down in Article 2(7)(c) of the basic Regulation, normal value will be determined in accordance with Article 2(7)(b) of the basic Regulation. Exporters/producers intending to submit duly substantiated claims must do so within the specific time limit set in paragraph 6(d) of this notice. The Commission will send claim forms to all exporters/producers in Ukraine named in the complaint and to any association of exporters/producers named in the complaint, as well as to the authorities of Ukraine.

5.2.   Procedure for assessment of Community interest

In accordance with Article 21 of the basic Regulation and in the event that the allegations of dumping and injury caused thereby are substantiated, a decision will be reached as to whether the adoption of anti-dumping measures would not be against the Community interest. For this reason the Community industry, importers, their representative associations, representative users and representative consumer organisations, provided that they prove that there is an objective link between their activity and the product concerned, may, within the general time limits set in paragraph 6(a)(ii) of this notice, make themselves known and provide the Commission with information. The parties which have acted in conformity with the precedent sentence may request a hearing setting the particular reasons why they should be heard within the time limit set in paragraph 6(a)(iii) of this notice. It should be noted that any information submitted pursuant to Article 21 will only be taken into account if supported by factual evidence at the time of submission.

6.   Time limits

(a)   General time limits

(i)   For parties to request a questionnaire or other claim forms

All interested parties should request a questionnaire or other claim forms as soon as possible, but not later than 10 days after the publication of this notice in the Official Journal of the European Union.

All interested parties, if their representations are to be taken into account during the investigation, must make themselves known by contacting the Commission, present their views and submit questionnaire replies or any other information within 40 days of the date of publication of this notice in the Official Journal of the European Union, unless otherwise specified. Attention is drawn to the fact that the exercise of most procedural rights set out in the basic Regulation depends on the party's making itself known within the aforementioned period.

Companies selected in a sample must submit questionnaire replies within the time limits specified in paragraph 6(b)(iii) of this notice.

(iii)   Hearings

All interested parties may also apply to be heard by the Commission within the same 40 day time limit.

(b)   Specific time limit in respect of sampling

(i)

The information specified in paragraph 5.1(a)(i), 5.1(a)(ii) and 5.1 (a)(iii) should reach the Commission within 15 days of the date of publication of this notice in the Official Journal of the European Union, given that the Commission intends to consult parties concerned that have expressed their willingness to be included in the sample on its final selection within a period of 21 days of the publication of this notice in the Official Journal of the European Union.

(ii)

All other information relevant for the selection of the sample as referred to in 5.1(a) (iv) must reach the Commission within a period of 21 days of the publication of this notice in the Official Journal of the European Union.

(iii)

The questionnaire replies from sampled parties must reach the Commission within 37 days from the date of the notification of their inclusion in the sample.

(c)   Specific time limit for the selection of the market economy country

Parties to the investigation may wish to comment on the appropriateness of Romania which, as mentioned in paragraph 5.1(d) of this notice, is envisaged as a market-economy country for the purpose of establishing normal value in respect of Ukraine. These comments must reach the Commission within 10 days of the date of publication of this notice in the Official Journal of the European Union.

(d)   Specific time limit for submission of claims for market economy status and/or for individual treatment

Duly substantiated claims for market economy status (as mentioned in paragraph 5.1(e) of this notice) and/or for individual treatment pursuant to Article 9(5) of the basic Regulation, must reach the Commission within 15 days of the date of publication of this notice in the Official Journal of the European Union.

7.   Written submissions, questionnaire replies and correspondence

All submissions and requests made by interested parties must be made in writing (not in electronic format, unless otherwise specified) and must indicate the name, address, e-mail address, telephone and fax, and/or telex numbers of the interested party. All written submissions, including the information requested in this notice, questionnaire replies and correspondence provided by interested parties on a confidential basis shall be labelled as ‘Limited  (4)’ and, in accordance with Article 19(2) of the basic Regulation, shall be accompanied by a non-confidential version, which will be labelled ‘For inspection by interested parties’.

8.   Non-cooperation

In cases in which any interested party refuses access to or does not provide the necessary information within the time limits, or significantly impedes the investigation, provisional or final findings, affirmative or negative, may be made in accordance with Article 18 of the basic Regulation, on the basis of the facts available.

Where it is found that any interested party has supplied false or misleading information, the information shall be disregarded and use may be made of the facts available. If an interested party does not cooperate or cooperates only partially and findings are therefore based on facts available in accordance with Article 18 of the basic Regulation, the result may be less favourable to that party than if it had cooperated.

9.   Schedule of the investigation

The investigation will be concluded, according to Article 6(9) of the basic Regulation within 15 months of the date of the publication of this notice in the Official Journal of the European Union. According to Article 7(1) of the basic Regulation, provisional measures may be imposed no later than 9 months from the publication of this notice in the Official Journal of the European Union.

10.   Review of existing measures

By Council Regulation (EC) No 2320/97 (5) definitive anti-dumping duties were imposed on imports of certain seamless pipes and tubes of iron or non-alloy steel originating inter alia in Russia and Romania, falling within CN codes 7304 10 10, 7304 10 30, 7304 31 99, 7304 39 91 and 7304 39 93.

By Council Regulation (EC) No 348/2000 (6) a definitive anti-dumping duty was imposed on imports of certain seamless pipes and tubes of iron or non-alloy steel originating in Croatia and Ukraine, falling within CN codes 7304 10 10, 7304 10 30, 7304 31 99, 7304 39 91 and 7304 39 93.

Should it be determined that measures are to be imposed on certain seamless pipes and tubes of iron or steel originating in Croatia, Romania, Russia and Ukraine in the proceeding initiated by the present notice, and thus cover the seamless pipes and tubes of iron or non-alloy steel the continued imposition of the measures imposed by Council Regulations (EC) No 2320/97 and 348/2000 will be no longer appropriate, and those regulations would have to be amended or repealed accordingly. Therefore, an interim review should be opened as regards Regulations (EC) No 2320/97 and 348/2000 in order to allow any amendment or repeal necessary in the light of the investigation initiated by the present notice.

Therefore, the Commission hereby initiates, pursuant to Article 11(3) of the basic Regulation, an interim review of Regulation (EC) No 2320/97 and Regulation (EC) No 348/2000. The provisions set out in points 5, 6, 7 and 8 of the notice, apply mutatis mutandis to these interim reviews.

(2)  Individual margins may be claimed pursuant to Article 17(3) of the basic Regulation for companies not included in the sample, Article 9(5) of the basic Regulation concerning individual treatment in cases involving non market economy countries/economies in transition, and Article 2(7)(b) of the basic Regulation for companies claiming market economy status.

General remark:

when there is a stroke in the column 4 (reference of the superseded standard), it means that the referenced standard may not be used without amendment or particular part for EMC purpose.

Note 1:

Generally the date of cessation of presumption of conformity will be the date of withdrawal ( ‘dow’), set by the European Standardisation Organisation, but attention of users of these standards is drawn to the fact that in certain exceptional cases this can be otherwise.

Note 2.1:

The new (or amended) standard has the same scope as the superseded standard. On the date stated, the superseded standard ceases to give presumption of conformity with the essential requirements of the directive.

Note 2.2:

The new standard has a broader scope than the superseded standard. On the date stated the superseded standard ceases to give presumption of conformity with the essential requirements of the directive.

Note 2.3:

The new standard has a narrower scope than the superseded standard. On the date stated the (partially) superseded standard ceases to give presumption of conformity with the essential requirements of the directive for those products that fall within the scope of the new standard. Presumption of conformity with the essential requirements of the directive for products that still fall within the scope of the (partially) superseded standard, but that do not fall within the scope of the new standard, is unaffected.

Note 3:

In case of amendments, the referenced standard is EN CCCCC:YYYY, its previous amendments, if any, and the new, quoted amendment. The superseded standard (column 4) therefore consists of EN CCCCC:YYYY and its previous amendments, if any, but without the new quoted amendment. On the date stated, the superseded standard ceases to give presumption of conformity with the essential requirements of the directive.

Note 7:

EN 60730-1:2000 does not give presumption of conformity without another part of the standard.

Note 8:

EN 55012 is applicable for giving presumption of conformity under directive 89/336/EEC for those vehicles, boats and internal combustion engine-driven devices that are not within the scope of directives 95/54/EC, 97/24/EC, 2000/2/EC or 2004/104/EC.

Note 9:

EN 62052-11:2003 does not give presumption of conformity without a part of the EN 62053 series.
