At this morning’s meeting of the Anti-dumping Committee, the Commission’s proposals for Anti-dumping duties on imports for ceramic tableware and kitchenware were voted against by at least 14 of the 27 EU Member States.  At this stage, we can regard this as good news, although the optimism should be tempered as the Committee’s vote is not binding on the Commission, which can still go ahead and impose provisional duties.

An Anti dumping Committee vote against proposed measures is extremely rare, so it is a little unclear what steps the Commission will now take – they could drop the case completely, ignore the vote and impose provisional ADD anyway, or seek to agree amended proposals. 

We are monitoring developments closely, and will update further as soon as we have more clarity.
