EU launches further anti-circumvention investigations on imports of glass fibre fabrics via Turkey

On 17 December 2021, the EU Commission initiated two investigations on anti-circumvention related to glass fibre fabrics.

The investigations concern circumvention of the import of glass fibre fabrics from China and Egypt via Turkey.

The product has a market value of about € 200 million in the EU and the annual import value is about € 30 million. It is used in the production of windmill blades and for the reinforcement of thermoplastic and thermoset resins. Around 2.000 people in the EU work in the industry and produce more than 100.000 tonnes of glass fibre fabrics per year. The investigations are taking place due to the suspicion of product assembly or finalisation to circumvent duties in Turkey. If these actions are confirmed the anti-dumping and anti-subsidy measures against unfairly priced imports from China and Egypt may be extended to imports from Turkey. The findings of the investigations are due by September 2022. This isn't the first investigation of this sorts as the EU Commission has an ongoing anti-circumvention investigation of glass fibre fabrics imports via Morocco where the findings are due by February 2022.
