Anti-dumping

On October 27, 2011 the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of quicklime (also known as calcium oxide, burnt lime and unslaked lime) from Thailand (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2011/53).
The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS code: 2522.1000.
The complaint was lodged on October 6, 2011 by Cockburn Cement Limited.
The dumping is suspected to have occurred between July 1, 2010, and June 30, 2011.
On February 20, 2012, the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service issued the Statement of Essential Facts (SEF Report No. 179). It came to the conclusion that even if imports from Thailand were dumped they have caused negligible injury over the investigation period.
On April 3, 2012, the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service decided to terminate the investigation without imposing a duty (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2012/12).
After Cockburn Cement Pty Ltd. lodged an application on April 27, 2012 for a review of the decision to terminate the investigation, the Review Officer revoked on June 25, 2012 the decision to terminate the dumping investigation. Hence, on August 3, 2012, the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service resumed the investigation on imports of quicklime from Thailand (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2012/38).
On March 19, 2013, the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service issued the Statement of Essential Facts (SEF Report No. 179A). It came to the conclusion that even if imports from Thailand were dumped they have caused negligible injury over the investigation period.
On May 2, 2013, the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service decided to terminate the investigation without imposing a duty (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2013/31).
After Cockburn Cement Pty Ltd. lodged an application on May 27, 2013 for a review of the decision to terminate the investigation, the Anti-Dumping Review Panel revoked on August 8, 2013 the decision to terminate the dumping investigation. Hence, on September 17, 2013, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission resumed the investigation on imports of quicklime from Thailand (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2013/73).
On October 7, 2014, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission issued the Statement of Essential Facts (SEF Report No. 179B). It came to the conclusion that even if imports from Thailand were dumped they have caused negligible injury to the domestic industry. Hence, it recommended to again terminate the investigation without imposing an anti-dumping measure.
On November 7, 2014, the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission decided to terminate the investigation without imposing a duty (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2014/124).
