The European Commission amends the additional duty rate and list of goods which are applicable on imports from the United States
The United States failure to bring the Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act (Byrd-Amendment) in compliance with its obligations under the WTO agreements resulted in 2005 in an imposed 15% ad valorem additional duty (Regulation (EC) 673/2005). In April of this year, new adjustments are made by the European Commission. These adjustments concern the ad valorem additional duty on imports originating from the United Sates and the list of goods (Annex I to this Regulation) on which this duty is applicable.
