The European Commission has imposed definitive anti-dumping duties on imports of Electrolytic Chromium Coated Steel originating in China and Brazil. An investigation found that Chinese and Brazilian imports were being dumped on the EU market and were injurious to the EU industry. The EU market share of the countries concerned for this product increased from 13.1% in 2018 to 15.4% in the investigation period. In response, the Commission will impose duties ranging from EUR 239 per tonne to EUR 607 per tonne of ECCS imported. Such duties will defend the EU industry, which employs almost 1,000 people across France, Germany, Span and Italy, from further injury from dumped imports. The EC started its AD investigation into the imports on 24 September 2021, following a complaint lodged by European Steel Association Eurofer, on behalf of ArcelorMittal Atlantique et Lorraine (France), ArcelorMittal Etxebarri (Spain); ThyssenKrupp Rasselstein (Germany) and Acciaierie d’Italia, representing some 85-95% of the production and sales of this product in the EU steel industry. ECCS is used in a wide range of applications, typically for consumer and industrial packaging. It is most frequently used for food packaging but also as protective material for optical fibre protection or other electrical and electronic parts. The value of the EU ECCS market is almost EUR 500 million.
