COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) No 285/97 of 17 February 1997 amending Regulation (EEC) No 738/92 imposing a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of cotton yarn originating in Brazil and Turkey

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 384/96 of 22 December 1995 on protection against dumped imports from countries not members of the European Community (1),

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission, after consulting the Advisory Committee,

Whereas:

A. Previous procedure

(1) The Council, by Regulation (EEC) No 738/92 (2), imposed definitive anti-dumping duties on imports of cotton yarn falling with CN codes 5205 11 00 to 5205 45 90 and 5206 11 00 to 5206 45 90 originating, inter alia, in Turkey. Sampling was applied to Turkish exporters, and individual duties ranging from 4,9 % to 12,1 % were imposed on the companies in the sample, while other cooperating companies not included in the sample received a weighted average duty of 9 %. A duty of 12,1 % was imposed on companies which either did not make themselves known or did not cooperate in the investigation.

B. Amendment

(2) Pursuant to Article 11 (4) of Regulation (EC) No 384/96, a new exporter's review to determine individual dumping margins could not be initiated in this proceeding, as sampling was used in the original investigation. However, in order to ensure equal treatment between any new exporters and the cooperating companies not included in the sample during the original investigation, it is considered that provision should be made for the weighted average duty imposed on the latter companies to be applied to any new exporters which would otherwise be entitled to a review pursuant to Article 11 (4),

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The following paragraph shall be added to Article 1 of Regulation (EEC) No 738/92:

'6. Where any party provides sufficient evidence to the Commission that it did not export the goods described in Article 1 (1) during the investigation period, that it is not related to any exporter or producer subject to the measures imposed by this Regulation and that it has exported the goods concerned after the investigation period, or that it has entered into an irrevocable contractual obligation to export a significant quantity to the Community, then the Council, acting by simple majority on a proposal submitted by the Commission after consulting the Advisory Committee, may amend Article 1 (2) by adding that party to Article 1 (2).`

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 17 February 1997.

For the Council

The President
