Jiaxing, Zhejiang, China Fasteners Import & Export Enterprise Association Deputy Secretary-General Zhang Feng, 24, in Brussels, said that while Chinese enterprises have made a great effort, but on behalf of EU member states in 26-day meeting is likely to be adopted by the European Commission's recommendations , decided on Chinese exports to the EU bolts, nuts and other iron and steel fasteners levy ranging from 63% to 87% of the high anti-dumping duties. The European Commission November 9, 2007 decision on steel fasteners originating in China initiated anti-dumping investigations. After a year of trial, the European Commission has made a beginning of Chinese enterprises unfavorable antidumping final ruling, once approved by member countries, China's fastener products will face a formal anti-dumping duty, usually a period of 5 years.
