The EEC Commission has duly decided to propose anti-dumping duties on the electronic typewriters made by four Japanese companies, and the electronic scales made by a fifth, on the grounds that although the products are assembled in Europe – all but one of the companies doing it in the UK, the other in France – the content of components and subassemblies imported from the Far East, is too high. The companies affected are Silver Seiko, Matsushita Electric Industrial Co, Sharp Corp and Canon Inc for the typewriters, and TEC Tokyo Electric for the scales. Typewriters made by Brother Industries and by TEC were investigated, but found to be within the EEC rules that came in last June. The proposed duties will range from $27 to $68 on each typewriter affected, and $80 on the scales.
