BRUSSELS (July 29, 12:15 p.m. ET) — The European Commission has launched an anti-dumping investigation into EU imports of woven and stitched glass fiber fabrics from China.
The European Composites Industry Association (EuCIA), the European umbrella of the composites industry, said it was notified as a user of the products concerned and nominated as an interested party in the proceedings.
In 2010, the Commission imposed anti-dumping duties on glass fibers originating in China. The new complaint, lodged by the Glass Fibre Defence Coalition, concerns fabrics of woven or stitched or woven and stitched continuous filament glass fiber rovings, excluding products which are impregnated or pre-impregnated (pre-preg), and excluding open mesh fabrics with cells with assize of more than 1.8 mm in both length and width and weighing more than 35 grams per square meter.
The European Commission says relevant stakeholders need to inform it they wish to be considered interested parties in the investigation within 15 days of the publication date of July 28.
