The General Court of the European Union has ordered the cancellation of an anti-dumping duty imposed on aluminum foil manufactured by Rusal Armenal in Armenia, the Russia-based parent company said Thursday.
The anti-dumping duty and a provisional duty was imposed in September 2009 for aluminum foil imported into EU from Armenia, Brazil and China.
In December 2009, Rusal Armenal filed an application to the General Court of the EU to annul the EU council’s order, as the duties had violated the council’s regulation on protection against dumped imports from non-EU member countries, and General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994, the company said.
In its judgment of November 5, 2013, the court annulled the regulation, and ordered the EU to pay the costs incurred by the Armenian company for the case, Rusal said.
“The company is delighted that the court found in its favor and overturned the regulation,” Rusal said.
