Tosoh Hellas Wins Favorable Anti-Dumping Decision

September 19, 2007

Cleary Gottlieb won an important victory for Tosoh Hellas, when the European Commission on September 18 published a regulation imposing provisional anti-dumping duties of 14.9% on imports of electrolytic manganese dioxide originating in South Africa. These duties protect the European production facilities of Tosoh Hellas, a subsidiary of Japan’s Tosoh Corporation, against dumped imports from South Africa, thus helping preserve more than 100 jobs in the Thessaloniki region of Greece.

Cleary Gottlieb convinced the EC to initiate the proceedings in December 2006, shortly before the Commission implicitly imposed an eight-month moratorium on the introduction of new cases.
