COUNCIL REGULATION (EEC) No 2089/84

of 19 July 1984

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

THE COUNCIL 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 Community (1), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1580/82 (2), and in particular Article 12 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal submitted by the Commission after consultations within the Advisory Committee as provided for under the above Regulation,

Whereas:

A. Provisional action

(1) The Commission, by Regulation (EEC) No 744/84 (3), imposed a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of single-row deep-groove radial ball bearings with greatest external diameter not more than 30 mm, originating in Japan and Singapore.

B. Subsequent procedures

(2) Following the imposition of the provisional antidumping duty, all parties involved in the investigations leading to the preliminary determinations requested and were granted on opportunity to be heard by the Commission and also presented written submissions making known their views on the duty.

(3) The same parties also requested to be informed of certain facts and essential considerations on the basis of which it was intended to recommend definitive action and these requests were granted.

(4) In addition to the investigations leading to preliminary determinations, the Commission carried out an investigation at the premises of NMB Italia Srl, Barreggio, Italy.

(5) Within the time limit laid down by Article 3 of Regulation (EEC) No 744/84, nine Japanese manufacturers of the ball bearings in question who, in their own estimation, were of minor importance and who had not reacted to the notice of initiation of the anti-dumping proceeding made themselves known to the Commission. They all requested to be exempted from anti-dumping measures and were given, where appropriate, the opportunity to make known their views orally. None of them availed itself of this opportunity.

(6) Four of the manufacturers, namely:

- Inoue Jikuuke Kogyo Co. Ltd, Osaka,

- SMT Nankai Seiko Co. Ltd, Osaka,

- ISC NSK Micro Precision Co. Ltd, Tokyo,

- Kitanihon Seiko Co. Ltd, Ashihetsu,

claimed not to be exporting to the Community and were, therefore, not investigated.

(7) Three of these manufacturers, namely:

- MMM Matsuo Bearing Co. Ltd, Osaka,

- Izumoto Seiko Co. Ltd, Osaka,

- WTW Wada Seiko Co. Ltd, Osaka,

claiming to have exported to the Community during the period investigated, submitted written information to the Commission. This was examined but found to be incomplete.

(8) Two of these manufacturers, namely:

- Tottori Yamakei Bearing Ltd, Seisakusho,

- TOK Bearing Co. Ltd, Tokyo,

did not submit any information within the time limit laid down and therefore had to be disregarded.

(9) An additional Japanese manufacturer, Asahi Seiko Co., Osaka, made itself known outside the time limit laid down.

(10) Two importers of the ball bearings in question namely:

- Kugellager Fiedler, Seevetal, Germany,

- Findling Waelzlager, Karlsruhe, Germany,

made their views duly known to the Commission either in writing or orally.

C. Normal value

JAPAN

(11) Normal value was finally determined on the basis of the average price paid by unrelated purchasers on the domestic market. In those cases where the producer/exporter sold both directly to these purchasers and through wholly-owned or controlled sales companies, the combined weighted average of sales prices to unrelated purchasers was, with one exception in unusual circumstances, taken.
