Importing Ceramic Tiles from China? Anti Dumping Duties Imposed

15 November 2011

BJGI has been made aware of the introduction of Anti Dumping Duties (ADD) on ceramic tiles made in China being imported into the European Union.  Earlier this year a provisional ADD of 73% was introduced effective from 18 Mar 11, with some manufacturers getting a reduced rate.

The European Commission has concluded its investigation and announced the definitive rate to be applied from 16 Sep 11.  The basic rate is now 69.7% with some suppliers, listed in the regulation, receiving a reduced rate.   These rates will remain in place for 5 years.

The definitive anti-dumping duty is imposed on imports of glazed and unglazed ceramic flags and paving, hearth or wall tiles; glazed and unglazed ceramic mosaic cubes and the like, whether or not on a backing, currently falling within CN codes:
