COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2015/588

of 14 April 2015

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) No 470/2014 imposing a definitive anti-dumping duty and collecting definitively the provisional duty imposed on imports of solar glass originating in the People's Republic of China

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1225/2009 of 30 November 2009 on protection against dumped imports from countries not members of the European Community (1), and in particular Articles 9(4) and 14(1),

Whereas:

(1)

On 13 May 2014 the Commission adopted Implementing Regulation (EU) No 470/2014 (2) (‘the Regulation imposing definitive anti-dumping duties’) and Implementing Regulation (EU) No 471/2014 (3) (‘the Regulation imposing definitive countervailing duties’).

(2)

Under the Regulation imposing definitive anti-dumping duties, the dumping margin for cooperating non-sampled companies was determined to be 84,7 % (4). The injury elimination level applicable to these companies was determined at 36,5 % (5).

(3)

Three of these companies did not cooperate in the parallel anti-subsidy investigation and for that reason their definitive anti-subsidy duty rate was determined at 17,1 % (6). The companies concerned are:

Henan Ancai Hi-Tech Co., Ltd,

Henan Succeed Photovoltaic Materials Corporation, and

Zibo Jinxing Glass Co. Ltd.

(4)

Pursuant to recital 167 of the Regulation imposing definitive anti-dumping duties, in parallel investigations where the subsidy margins are lower than the injury elimination level, the definitive anti-subsidy duty should be imposed at the level of the established subsidy margins and the definitive anti-dumping duty should be imposed up to the relevant injury elimination level.

(5)

On that basis, for the three companies that cooperated in the anti-dumping investigation but did not cooperate in the parallel anti-subsidy investigation, the rate at which the anti-dumping and the anti-subsidy duties should be imposed should be set as follows:

Company

Subsidy margin

Dumping margin

Injury elimination level

Countervailing (anti-subsidy) duty

Anti-dumping duty

Other cooperating companies in the anti-dumping investigation, but not in the parallel anti-subsidy investigation

17,1 %

84,7 %

36,5 %

17,1 %

19,4 %

(6)

It follows that recital 167 of the Regulation imposing definitive anti-dumping duties should also contain the information about the three companies as presented in the preceding recital.

(7)

It also follows that Article 1(2) of the Regulation imposing definitive anti-dumping duties should be amended accordingly.

(8)

If the amount of any duties paid or entered into the accounts in accordance with Article 1(2) of the Regulation imposing definitive anti-dumping duties exceeds those due under the present Regulation, that amount should be repaid or remitted. Similar applies to the provisional duties definitively collected under Article 2 of the same Regulation.

(9)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by Article 15(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1225/2009,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
