Application for interim measures - Suspension of operation - Suspension of operation of a regulation establishing a definitive anti-dumping duty - Conditions for granting - Specific nature of the damage

( EEC Treaty, Art . 185; Rules of Procedure, Art . 83(2 ) )


As the Court has consistently held, the urgency of an application for interim measures, as referred to in Article 83 ( 2 ) of the Rules of Procedure, must be assessed in relation to the necessity for an order granting interim relief in order to prevent serious and irreparable damage to the party requesting the interim measure .

In the case of a request for the suspension of the application of definitive anti-dumping duties, the applicant undertaking may not limit itself, for the purposes of establishing urgency, to invoking the existence of effects which are inherent in the imposition of an anti-dumping duty, namely a rise in the price in the products and, consequently, a corresponding reduction in its market share . It is in the very nature of an anti-dumping duty to bring about an increase in the price of the product in question since the purpose of the duty is to counterbalance the dumping margin which has been established and to protect the Community production from the injury caused by the dumping .

The risk of particularly serious and irreparable damage characterizing the situation of an undertaking in relation to the other undertakings concerned by the establishment of anti-dumping duties is not proved by the reference by that undertaking to the risk of definitively losing certain markets in the Community, a risk bound up with its sales organization which is based on recourse to the services of a single independent distributor in each Member State, where it is established that the imposition of a definitive anti-dumping duty has done no more than to curb the extremely rapid increase in its sales on the Community market .
