It’s official, the EU has opened a Si dumping investigation against Brazil, Bosnia and Hertzegovina

Key takeaways:

The complaint was lodged on 8 November 2017 by Ferroatlántica and Ferropem representing more than 85 % of the total Union production of silicon. (Notice Euroalliages is not involved.)

In the absence of reliable data on domestic prices for Bosnia and Herzegovina, the allegation of dumping is based on a comparison of a constructed normal value (manufacturing costs, selling, general and administrative costs — SG&A — and profit) with the export price (at ex-works level) of the product under investigation when sold for export to the Union.

On this basis, the dumping margins calculated are significant for Bosnia and Herzegovina.

In the absence of reliable data on domestic prices for Brazil, the allegation of dumping is based on a comparison of a constructed normal value (manufacturing costs, selling, general and administrative costs — SG&A — and profit) with the export price (at ex-works level) of the product under investigation when sold for export to the Union.

On this basis, the dumping margins calculated are significant for Brazil.

The investigation of dumping and injury will cover the period from 1 October 2016 to 30 September 2017 (‘the investigation period’). The examination of trends relevant for the assessment of injury will cover the period from 1 January 2014 to the end of the investigation period.
