Brussels: The European Union (EU) has decided to terminate its anti-dumping investigation over China`s steel fittings.

The European Commission (EC), executive body the EU, said Wednesday that it decided to terminate anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports of stainless steel tube and pipe butt welding fittings originating from China, Xinhua reported.

The EC launched a probe following complaints over alleged injurious dumping in last September from the defence committee of the stainless steel butt welding fittings industry that represents over a quarter of the total EU production.
However, in a letter dated June 27 this year, the complaint was formally withdrawn which allowed the investigation to be terminated as per EU rules.
