Europe import duties of 13.8% on Chinese glass fibre likely to go ahead

According to the European Composites Industry Association ( EuCIA), the European Commission is proposing definitive import duties of 13.8% on glass fibre products from China to be imposed from 17 March 2011 for a period of 5 years, if agreed by the Council of the European Union next month.

Representatives of the EU27 Member States provisionally voted last week on the European Commission proposal for definitive anti-dumping duties on glass fibre originating in China. The Commission proposes definitive import duties of 13.8% and excludes yarns from the proceedings.

The Commission proposal was initially released for consultation in December 2010. It followed the Commission Regulation 812/2010 imposing provisional import duties of 43.6% for a period of 6 months from 17 September 2010.

EuCIA welcomes a reduction of duties from 43.6% to 13.8%, but believes this level will still be harmful for the European industry. It says a high number of major European users of glass fibre and associations have expressed their concerns with regard to the investigation and have questioned the provisional tariffs and the whole investigation.
