European Union Starts Anti-Dumping Procedure on Imported Russian Birch Plywood

Following a complaint brought by the Woodstock Consortium acting on behalf of the Union producers of birch plywood, who represent a majority of the total European Union (EU) production of the product, the EU has launched an anti-dumping procedure for the import of birch plywood from Russia. The investigation will cover the period from July 1st, 2019, through June 30th, 2020. According to the EU Complaints, non-imposition of anti-dumping measures against imports from Russia will continue to cause material injury to the Union industry of birch plywood and that the very existence of the Union industry of birch plywood is therefore at stake.
