Council Regulation (EC) No 2314/2000

of 17 October 2000

amending Regulation (EC) No 763/2000 extending the definitive anti-dumping duty, imposed by Regulation (EC) No 584/96 on imports of certain tube and pipe fittings, of iron or steel, originating in the People's Republic of China to imports of certain tube and pipe fittings, of iron or steel, consigned from Taiwan, whether declared as originating in Taiwan or not, and terminating the investigation in respect of imports from three Taiwanese exporters

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 384/96 of 22 December 1995 on protection against dumped imports from countries not members of the European Community(1),

Having regard to the proposal submitted by the Commission after consulting the Advisory Committee,

Whereas:

(1) Regulation (EC) No 763/2000(2) extended the definitive anti-dumping duty of 58,6 % imposed by Regulation (EC) No 584/96(3) to imports of the same product consigned from Taiwan, whether the product is declared as originating in Taiwan or not, with the exception of products manufactured and exported by the three cooperating Taiwanese exporters concerned.

(2) It is the consistent practice of the Community institutions to individualise anti-dumping measures in respect of goods manufactured by individual concerns.

(3) Article 1 of Regulation (EC) No 763/2000 limits the exemption from the extension of the duties to products manufactured and directly sold to the Community by the three cooperating Taiwanese exporters concerned.

(4) On the basis of the findings of the relevant investigation, it appears appropriate that the scope of the exemption should encompass all export sales of the product manufactured by the exporters concerned, either directly or through a third-party trader.

(5) The aforesaid Article 1 should therefore be amended in order to make the exemption applicable to products manufactured by the three cooperating Taiwanese producers, irrespective of the identity of the operator responsible for exporting the goods to the Community,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1
