COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 744/84

of 19 March 1984

imposing a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of certain ball bearings originating in Japan and Singapore

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN

COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 3017/79 of 20 December 1979 on protection against dumped or subsidized imports from countries not members of the European Economic Community (1), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1580/82 (2), and in particular Article 11 thereof,

After consultations within the Advisory Committee as provided for under the above Regulation,

Whereas:

A. Procedure

(1) In March 1983, the Commission received a complaint lodged by the Federation of European Bearing Manufacturers' Associations (Febma) on behalf of British, French, German and Italian producers of single-row deep-groove radial ball bearings with greatest external diameter of not more than 30 mm whose collective output constitutes the majority of Community production of the product in question. The complaint contained evidence of dumping and of material injury resulting therefrom.

(2) For those ball bearings falling within the scope of this complaint which were subject to undertakings accepted in the framework of a previous anti-dumping proceeding by Commission Decision 81/406/EEC (3), the Commission decided, on the basis of this complaint and information gathered during the monitoring of these undertakings, in addition to observations of market developments, that a review was warranted.

(3) All these elements taken together were considered sufficient by the Commission to justify the initiation of a proceeding. The Commission accordingly announced, by a notice published in the Official Journal of the European Communities (4), the initiation of an anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports into the Community of single-row deep-groove radial ball bearings with an outside diameter of up to 30 mm falling within heading No ex 84.62 of the Common Customs Tariff, corresponding to NIMEXE code ex 84.62-11 at the time of publication and to NIMEXE code ex 84.62-01 as from 1 January 1984, originating in Japan and Singapore and commenced an investigation.

(4) Subsequent to the initiation two more Community producers, non-Febma members, supported the complaint. As a result the proceeding now covers practically all Community production with the exception of the production in the Community of subsidiaries of two Japanese exporters.

(5) The Commission officially so advised the exporters and importers known to be concerned and the representatives of the exporting countries and the complainants and gave the parties directly concerned the opportunity to make known their views in writing and to request a hearing.

(6) All known producers, exporters and importers made their views known in writing. One party concerned requested and was granted a hearing.

(7) No submissions were made by Community purchasers of the ball bearings concerned.

(8) The Commission sought and verified all information it deemed to be necessary for the purposes of a preliminary determination and carried out investigations at the premises of the following:
