Anti-dumping

On 14 October 2010, the Malaysian Government initiated a sunset review on the anti-dumping measure in force on imports of polyethylene terephthalate originating in or exported from Chinese Taipei, Indonesia, Republic of Korea and Thailand. The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code subheading: 3907.6000. The original anti-dumping duty was imposed on 23 October 2005.
 
On 21 April 2011, the Malaysian authorities extended the anti-dumping duty on imports of the subject good from Thailand following the conclusion of the above sunset review. The rate of duty is between 0% and 49.25% depending on the company. The anti-dumping duty on imports of polyethylene terephthalate originating in or exported from Chinese Taipei, Indonesia and the Republic of Korea is terminated as dumping and injury to the domestic industry could not be established.
 
On 20 April 2016, the Malaysian authorities initiated a sunset review of the above products from Thailand (P.U. (B) No. 161/2016, 20.04.2016). This follows the request lodged on 20 October 2015 by MPI Polyester Industries Sdn. Bhd. Subsequently, on 21 April 2016 the Malaysian authorities extended the existing anti-dumping measure until 18 October 2016 (P.U. (A) 107/2016).
 
On 19 October 2016, the Malaysian authorities terminated the anti-dumping duty on imports of polyethylene terephthalate from Thailand following the conclusion of the above sunset review (P.U. (B) No. 448/2016, 17.10.2016). The duty was terminated as dumping and injury to the domestic industry could not be established.
