Notice amending Notice of initiation of an anti-subsidy proceeding concerning imports of bicycles originating in the People's Republic of China published on 27 April 2012, and extending that proceeding to imports of such bicycles consigned from Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia

2012/C 346/07

On 27 April 2012, the European Commission (‘the Commission’) initiated an anti-subsidy proceeding concerning imports of bicycles originating in the People's Republic of China (1) (‘the anti-subsidy notice of initiation’) in accordance with Article 10 of Council Regulation (EC) No 597/2009 of 11 June 2009 on protection against subsidised imports from countries not members of the European Community (2) (‘the anti-subsidy investigation’).

On 26 September 2012 the Commission published Commission Regulation (EU) No 875/2012 of 25 September 2012 initiating an investigation concerning the possible circumvention of anti-dumping measures imposed by Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 990/2011 on imports of bicycles originating in the People's Republic of China by imports of bicycles consigned from Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia, whether declared as originating in Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia or not, and making such imports subject to registration (3) in accordance with Article 13 of Council Regulation (EC) No 1225/2009 of 30 November 2009 on protection against dumped imports from countries not members of the European Community (4) (‘the anti-dumping anti-circumvention investigation’).

As the above anti-dumping anti-circumvention investigation covers the same product as the anti-subsidy investigation, namely imports of bicycles and other cycles (including delivery tricycles but excluding unicycles), not motorised originating in the People's Republic of China, the scope of the anti-subsidy notice of initiation should be amended ex officio to reflect the initiation of the anti-dumping anti-circumvention investigation. This is necessary, inter alia, in order to enable, if appropriate, the inclusion of any imports of the product concerned originating in the People's Republic of China, consigned from Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia, in the causation analysis of the anti-subsidy proceeding.

For this purpose the following paragraph shall be added after the second paragraph of point 5 of the anti-subsidy notice of initiation:

‘Following the publication of Commission Regulation (EU) No 875/2012 of 25 September 2012 initiating an investigation concerning the possible circumvention of anti-dumping measures imposed by Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 990/2011 on imports of bicycles originating in the People's Republic of China by imports of bicycles consigned from Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia, whether declared as originating in Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia or not, and making such imports subject to registration (5), the investigation may also determine whether the allegedly circumventing imports are imports of the product under investigation originating in the People's Republic of China that are allegedly being subsidised.

Point 5.6 shall be changed into point 5.7 and its title shall read as follows:

‘5.7.    Instructions for making written submissions and sending completed questionnaires and correspondence .’

A new point 5.6 shall be inserted between point 5.5 and point 5.7 and shall read as follows:

‘5.6.    Information relating to the issue raised in the third paragraph of point 5 :

All interested parties wishing to submit any relevant information regarding the third paragraph of point 5 must do so within 37 days of the publication of this amending Notice in the Official Journal of the European Union, unless otherwise specified.’
