Looks like we’ll be having to pay substantially more for our matrix printers this side of the water: the European Community has confirmed anti-dumping duties on the printers made by 15 Japanese manufacturers, although it has scaled them down a little from the levels suggested in May, which went as high as 58% – but some are higher than the provisional tariffs imposed at that time (CI No 938), when the highest was 33%. The top level of confirmed anti-dumping duty has been set at 47%, the lowest at 4.8%, and companies affected include Fujitsu – to pay 47%, Brother, Citizen and Seikosha, all paying higher than their provisional rates, Seiko Epson, getting away with a little less; others include Japan Business Computer, Copal, Star Micronics, Nakajima, Shinwa Digital, Oki Electric, Alps Electric and TEC. The investigation followed complaints from local manufacturers Mannesmann Tally, Olivetti, Philips Kommunikations and Honywell Bull Italia.
