The request was lodged on 5 March 2018 by the European Bicycle Manufacturer's Association (‘EBMA’ or ‘the applicant’) on behalf of EU bicycle producers representing more than 45 % of the total Union production of bicycles. The request is based on the grounds that the expiry of the measures would be likely to result in continuation or recurrence of dumping and injury to the Union industry.
The product subject to this review is bicycles and other cycles (including delivery tricycles, but excluding unicycles), not motorised, falling within CN codes 8712 00 30 and ex 8712 00 70 (TARIC codes 8712 00 70 91, 8712 00 70 92 and 8712 00 70 99) (‘the product under review’).
The investigation of a continuation or recurrence of dumping will cover the period from 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018 (‘the review investigation period’). The examination of trends relevant for the assessment of the likelihood of a continuation or recurrence of injury will cover the period from 1 January 2014 to the end of the investigation period (‘the period considered’).
The investigation will be concluded, pursuant to Article 11(5) of the basic Regulation within 15 months of the date of the publication of this Notice in the Official Journal of the European Union.
