Anti-dumping duties are typically levied when a foreign company is selling an item significantly below the price at which it is being produced. While the intention of anti-dumping duties is to save domestic jobs, these tariffs can also lead to higher prices for domestic consumers.

According to the Announcement 2022 NO. 17 of Ministry of Commerce of The People’s Republic of China published on 28th June, 2022, China extends the anti-dumping duty (ADD) on Certain Iron or Steel Fasteners originating from UN and UK, which will take effect from June 29 for 5 years. This is not the first time, as early in 2010 China decided to levy anti-dumping duty on Certain Iron or Steel Fastener imports from the European Union, ranging from 6.1% to 26%.
 
The updated anti-dumping duty imposed on wood screws, self-tapping screws, other screws and bolts (whether or not with their nuts or washers, but excluding screws of a shank thickness not exceeding 6 mm, and excluding screws and bolts for fixing railway track construction material), and washers with a fixed rate of 26% for all from United Kindom, but a flexible rate 5.5%-26% for the European Union. The above fasteners are classified under the HS Code 73181200, 73181400, 73181510, 73181590, 73182100, 73182200, 90211000 and 90212900.
