COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2020/45

of 20 January 2020

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1379 as regards the extension of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of bicycles originating in the People’s Republic of China to imports of certain bicycle parts originating in the People’s Republic of China by Council Regulation (EC) No 71/97

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Regulation (EU) 2016/1036 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 8 June 2016 on protection against dumped imports from countries not members of the European Union (1) (‘the basic Regulation’), and in particular Article 11(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

By Regulation (EEC) No 2474/93 (2), the Council imposed a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of bicycles originating in the People’s Republic of China.

(2)

Council Regulation (EC) No 71/97 (3) extended the measures to imports of certain bicycle parts originating in the People’s Republic of China, following an anti-circumvention investigation. Extensions of measures following an anti-circumvention investigation remain in force as long as the original measures remain in force.

(3)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1379 (4) prolonged the measures on imports of bicycles originating in the People’s Republic of China for another five years following an expiry review pursuant to Article 11(2) of Regulation (EU) 2016/1036. Since it did not explicitly mention the extension to certain bicycle parts, it should be clarified that the extension of measures is maintained also to imports of those bicycle parts originating in the People’s Republic of China.

(4)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1379 should be amended as well to clarify that the product under review falls under the CN codes indicated in that Regulation only at the moment it was published, and that changes in the CN have no impact on the measures.

(5)

Therefore, Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1379 should be amended accordingly.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by Article 15(1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/1036.
