COMMISSION DECISION of 3 September 1998 accepting undertakings in connection with the anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports of flat pallets of wood originating in the Republic of Poland (notified under document number C(1998) 2553) (98/554/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

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), as amended by Regulation (EC) No 905/98 (2), and in particular Article 8(1) thereof,

Having regard to Commission Regulation (EC) No 1023/97 (3), as amended by Regulations (EC) No 1632/97 (4) and 1633/97 (5), and in particular Article 2 thereof,

After consulting the Advisory Committee,

Whereas:

A. PREVIOUS PROCEDURE

(1) The Commission, by Regulation (EC) No 1023/97 (hereinafter referred to as 'the provisional Regulation`), imposed provisional anti-dumping duties on certain imports of flat pallets of wood falling within CN code ex 4415 20 20 originating in the Republic of Poland and accepted undertakings offered from certain exporting producers. These undertakings concerned only one pallet type, i.e. the EUR pallet.

(2) Since sampling was used in the investigation, requests for reviews under Article 11(4) could not be accepted. However, in order to ensure equal treatment between new exporters and the cooperating companies not included in the sample during the original investigation, by Regulation (EC) No 1632/97, the provisional Regulation was amended. Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1632/97 stipulated that new Polish exporting producers could have undertakings accepted with regard to exports of EUR pallets, provided they satisfied the criteria set out therein.

(3) By Regulation (EC) No 2334/97 (6), the Council imposed a definitive anti-dumping duty on certain imports of flat pallets of wood originating in the Republic of Poland.

B. NEW EXPORTERS' REQUEST

(4) Following the adoption of Regulation (EC) No 2334/97, 10 further new Polish exporting producers have requested that Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1023/97 be applied to them and they have offered undertakings with regard to the EUR pallet. They have also provided sufficient evidence pursuant to Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1023/97 showing that they are genuine new exporting producers. In application of Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1023/97, the undertakings offered by these 10 Polish exporting producers with regard to the EUR pallet should therefore be accepted,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
