Safeguard

On 10 December 2015, the Egyptian Ministry of Industry and Trade initiated a safeguard investigation on imports of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET). The product subject to investigation is classified under HS code subheading: 3907.60. This follows the application lodged by the Egyptian Indian Polyester Company.
 
On 16 August 2016, the Egyptian authorities terminated the above investigation without the imposition of safeguard duties. The investigation was terminated as the application by the domestic producer was withdrawn.
