Summary

1.As the Court has consistently held ( see, inter alia, the order of the President of the Court of 9 April 1987 in Case 77/87 R Technointorg v Council (( 1987 )) ECR 1793 ), in order to establish, in accordance with Article 83(2 ) of the Rules of Procedure, the circumstances giving rise to urgency in an application for interim measures seeking the suspension of the operation of a regulation imposing a definitive anti-dumping duty, it is not sufficient to describe effects which are inherent in the imposition of anti-dumping duties, namely a rise in the price of the product affected by the duty . The very aim of an anti-dumping duty is to increase the price of the product in question in order to offset the dumping margin found to exist . For an undertaking processing the product, those effects lead to an increase in its production costs and perhaps an increase in the price of the processed product, with a consequent diminution of the undertaking' s market share for that product .

That case-law does not, however, mean that it is impossible for the applicant to have suffered damage of such a kind as to justify granting suspension, provided that the damage suffered as a result of the imposition of the anti-dumping duty is peculiar to the applicant .

An undertaking which claims that its survival is endangered by the loss, following the introduction of the anti-dumping duty, of almost all its sales on the Community market, representing approximately one-third of its production, fails to establish the imminence of that danger if it admits that its business has remained profitable and that demand for the products which it sells on the world market is increasing .

2.When it concerns the main proceedings and not the proceedings in an application for interim measures, a measure of inquiry such as the appointment of an expert falls within the jurisdiction of the Court under Article 45 of the Rules of Procedure and not within that of the President ruling on the application for interim measures .
