The regulation also confirms that retrospective duties are not applicable. Customs authorities have been directed to discontinue the registration of imports established in accordance with Article 1 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/970, which is repealed. This means no definitive anti-dumping duty will be levied retroactively for registered imports. Data collected in accordance with Article 1 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/970 shall no longer be kept.
