(Adds details)

BRUSSELS, Nov 15 (Reuters) – The European Commission imposed

provisional duties on ceramic tableware and kitchenware imported
from China on Thursday despite opposition from a majority of EU
member states.

Fourteen of the EU’s 27 members voted against the planned
measures at a meeting of trade specialists in October, a highly
unusual move that left the Commission having to rethink its
plans.

The Commission can impose provisional duties while an
investigation continues. Under EU rules, it only consults member
states, but is not bound by their vote.

However, it does need to follow the majority opinion of
member states for definitive duties, which would need to be set
for these products by May 15. These would normally be set for
five years.

The EU’s executive body went ahead with provisional duties

EU to impose duties on Chinese ceramics
News from Xinhua:

BEIJING, Nov. 17 (Xinhuanet) — Chinese businesses have entered the latest trade spat with Europe. The European Commission has decided to impose provisional duties on ceramic tableware and kitchenware imported from China.

The commission made the decision despite opposition from a majority of EU member states. Earlier in October, 14 of the EU’s 27 members voted against the planned measures at a meeting of trade specialists.

Under EU rules, the commission only consults member states, but is not bound by their vote. However, it does need to follow the majority opinion of member states for definitive duties, which would need to be set for these products by May 15 next year.

According to the Commission, ceramic tableware and kitchenware imports from China totalled 926 million US dollars in 2011, making it one of the larger trade complaints under consideration.
