EU Launches Anti-Dumping Investigation on Imports of Aluminium Extrusion Imports from China

The European Commission has opened an investigation into whether China is dumping aluminium extrusions, products widely used in transport, construction and electronics. A notice in the EU's Official Journal said it was acting on a complaint filed last month by industry group European Aluminium representing seven producers. Commission said "The evidence provided by the complainant shows that the volume and the prices of the imported product under investigation have had, among other consequences, a negative impact."

European Aluminium welcomed the move. European Aluminium Director General Gerd Gotz said "Increasing amounts of underpriced Chinese exports are dumped on the EU market, with harmful consequences for European aluminium producers. In the past year, production lines and entire plants closed, with significant job losses as a result. We ask the EU to be proactive rather than wait until it is too late we need anti-dumping duties to be introduced urgently. Chinese firms are not playing by the rules and show no signs of changing their approach. We have every reason to believe the dumping will continue unless the EU protects its market. If no urgent action is taken Chinese production will further substitute European production and the EU risks losing a strategic value chain that is crucial to many low carbon applications.”
