Tech-Fab Europe, the trade association of European Union (EU) producers of glass fibre fabrics (GFF), has welcomed the European Commission’s recent moves to counter circumventing of the existing anti-dumping (AD) and anti-subsidy (AS) measures on EU GFF imports from China and Egypt, which were imposed in April and June last year respectively.

On May 27, 2021, the Commission announced the partial reopening of the initial AD and AS investigations to assess their extension to the EU’s continental shelf (off-shore). A few days later, on May 31, the Commission also initiated parallel AD and AS proceedings to investigate the potential circumvention of the initial AD and AS measures by imports of GFF consigned from Morocco.

“These steps are a strong show of the determination by the European Commission to ensure that the AD and AS measures are effective” and that circumventing activities do not continue, Tech-Fab Europe said in a press release.

“European industry will continue to provide support to the Commission as it identifies other ways in which subsidised and dumping by Chinese producers of GFF undermine the EU measures, whether through China, Egypt, Morocco, or anywhere else,” said Raphaël Pleynet, secretary general of the organisation.

GFF are reinforcement materials used together with resins to create composite parts that are used in various industries to replace heavier materials. The EU GFR (glass fibre reinforcement) and GFF industries are at the very beginning of the glass-based lightweight materials supply chain. They have provided substantial improvements to products and opened up thousands of new applications in recent decades.
