European Commission Investigates 50 Chinese Ceramic Companies

New initiative coordinated by the European Commission initiates an investigation of 50 Chinese ceramic companies for promoting unfair competition under European Union (EU) anti-dumping rules on exports of ceramic products such as tableware and kitchenware.

The European Commission has decided, on its own initiative, to investigate the possible circumvention of the anti-dumping measures imposed on imports of ceramic tableware and kitchenware originating in the People’s Republic of China and to make such imports subject to registration.

According to information published in the Official Journal of the EU, the Commission has at its disposal enough evidence that there is a reorganization of patterns and channels of sales of the product concerned. The document further states that the Customs authorities shall take the appropriate steps to register such imports.
