The European Commission has initiated an investigation of possible circumvention of the anti-dumping measures on imports of certain hot-rolled stainless steel sheets and coils originating in Indonesia by imports of these products consigned from Turkey, whether declared as originating in Turkey or not, and making such imports subject to registration. The product involved is flat-rolled products of stainless steel, whether or not in coils, of a width of 600mm or more and of a thickness exceeding 10mm. The investigation will be concluded within nine months from the date of entry into force of this regulation.The European Commission has received a request on 17 June 2022 from European Steel Association EUROFER. The request contains sufficient evidence that the existing anti-dumping measures on imports of the product concerned are being circumvented by imports of the product under investigation. A change in the pattern of trade involving exports from Indonesia and Turkey to the Union has taken place following the imposition of measures on the product concerned. The data provided in the request showed a significant change in the pattern of trade involving a significant increase in exports of stainless steel slabs, the main raw material for the production of the product under investigation, from Indonesia to Turkey and a significant increase in exports of the product under investigation from Turkey to the Union.The product concerned by the possible circumvention is flat-rolled products of stainless steel, whether or not in coils (including products cut-to-length and narrow strip), not further worked than hot-rolled and excluding products, not in coils, of a width of 600 mm or more and of a thickness exceeding 10 mm, classified under HS codes 7219 11, 7219 12, 7219 13, 7219 14, 7219 22, 7219 23, 7219 24, 7220 11 and 7220 12 and originating in Indonesia. This is the product to which the measures that are currently in force apply.
