Answer given by Ms Malmström on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-003582/2018

Further to the anti-dumping investigation initiated on 20 October 2017, the Commission decided to impose on 18 July 2018 a provisional anti-dumping duty at rates ranging from 21.8% to 83.6%.

The Commission is fully aware of the concerns raised by all parties which came forward and cooperated during the ongoing investigation. It received a number of submissions and held hearings with interested parties, including on the possible retroactive collection of duties.

On the basis of the information provided to the Commission during the investigation, European importers of e-bikes have no production subsidiaries in non-EU countries, even if they cooperate with independent producers located in non-EU countries, including China.

The investigation so far has shown that most e-bikes assembled by those importers use mainly Chinese components and components from other third countries. Those importers only rarely use European components, and then in limited quantities.

With regard to e-bikes imported to the EU and originating in China, the Commission will decide on the definitive collection of the provisional duty and the retroactive collection of any definitive duty only at the final stage, after analysing market data and after considering comments of all interested parties which will have been submitted following the Commission's provisional findings. A definitive result of the investigation is due by 18 January 2019, at the latest.
