Steel Exporters' Association is Planning to Take Legal Support- EU HRC

Steel Exporters' Association (ÇİB hereafter) is a professional establishment that represents most of the steel exporters of Turkey. The Association is assisting its members to increase national exports at the Steel industry and organizing, supervising export activities of member firms and taking necessary precautions on these activities. The Association negotiates with official authorities for solving problems at every level of export process, ensuring the decisions to be taken and realising organisations for that goal.

As you may recall, on May 14, 2020, EU Commission has initiated an anti-dumping investigation on “certain hot-rolled flat products of iron, non-alloy or other alloy steel” originating in Turkey.

Thus, ÇİB is planning to take legal support from a law firm for anti-dumping and probable cases finalize this investigations process in a positive way in the injury determination stage to defend Turkey.

In conclusion, as ÇİB, we would like to receive “a proposal” about the defence of Turkey in this anti-dumping investigation and probable cases from your company that should be considered as experienced in antidumping investigations and preferably has a partner in EU.

The offer should set out a general strategy, information about which cases defended previously and the associated budget. The associated budget should be on “per hour& flat- fee” bases, and total expected budget. Please make sure that your proposal covers injury determination stage fees for ÇİB and hearings if necessary.

Because of our limited time, the deadline for the proposal is 19th May 2020.
