Anti-subsidy

On November 17th, 2015, the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission initiated an anti-subsidy investigation on imports of grinding balls from China (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2015/132, 17.11.2015). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7325.9100 and 7326.1100.
The complaint was lodged on October 5th, 2015 by Commonwealth Steel Company Pty Ltd. and Donhad Pty Ltd.
An anti-dumping investigation was also initiated (see measure 10487).
On 22 April 2016, the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission imposed provisional countervailing duties on imports of grinding balls from China (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2016/45). The rate of the duty imposed on imports from China ranges between 12.6% and 113% depending on the exporting company.

On 6 May 2016, the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission included the HS codes subheading: 7325.90.90 to the investigation and subsequent duty, whilst the goods description remains unaltered.
