Current Status of
Fastener Antidumping &
Countervailing Investigations &
Measures in 2015
by Gang Hao Chang, Fastener World Inc.

In recent years, many fastener
companies from emerging countries
with advantages of low-cost
labor force, sufficient materials
supply, addition of state-of-the-art
machines and facilities from other
advanced countries, and support
of their governments’ favorable
export policies, are not only able to
fully satisfy their domestic
industrial demand for

retaliative reaction and attitude
significantly highlight the continuously

increasing trade disputes between
the EU and China.
In July 2011, the Dispute
Settlement Body of WTO ruled that
the antidumping measures the EU
imposed against certain fasteners
imported from China violated the
trade regulations of WTO. Although
the EU determined to reduce the
antidumping duty for non-cooperating
suppliers from 85%
to 74.1% in 2012, most
companies in the fastener
industry still think that
it is too high and is not
in correspondence with
the actual fact. In 2013,
China lodged a complaint
to WTO, requesting the
EU should completely and
immediately adjust its illegal
measures, which, as claimed
by China, must be canceled.
In 2015 WTO’s panel for the
same issue reported that the
antidumping measure the EU
currently imposes against certain
carbon steel fasteners from China
still violates the trade regulations of
WTO. China expressed its welcome to
the result, but the EU seemed to have
a different thought and once again
submitted its appeal to WTO on Sep.

on imposing antidumping measures
on Chinese fasteners will not change
in the short term. In an email I wrote
to EFDA President Dr. Volker Lederer

Carbon steel fasteners

In addition to advanced countries, some emerging
countries have also imposed certain measures (e.g.,
increasing import taxes for certain products or
relaunching sunset reviews) to protect their domestic
manufacturing. The sunset review Mexico launched this
July against certain carbon steel nuts from China and
the still effective protective measure (duty rate at 11.6%)
Russia imposes on Chinese carbon steel screws/nuts are
both examples.
