Anti-dumping

On May 18, 2009, the Indian authorities initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of circular weaving machines (having six or more shuttles for weaving PP/HDPE fabrics of a width exceeding 30 cms) from China.
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 8446.21, 8446.2190, 8446.29 and 8446.2900.
On February 16, 2010, the Indian authorities issued their preliminary findings. They recommended the imposition of a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of circular weaving machines from China. This provisional duty was imposed on April 12, 2010 (Notification No. 49/2010-Customs, 12.04.2010). The amount of this provisional duty is USD 1,193 per machine. This provisional duty is effective upto and inclusive of October 11, 2010.
On November 16, 2010, the Indian authorities issued their final findings and recommended the imposition of a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of circular weaving machines originating in China. This definitive duty was imposed on February 16, 2011 (Notification No. 10/2011-Customs, 16.02.2011). The amount of this definitive duty is USD 1,193 per machine, at the exception of the Chinese producer Starlinger Plastic Machinery Company (Taicang) whose exports are not subject to the payment of a duty. This definitive duty is effective for a period of five years from the date of imposition of the provisional anti-dumping duty, i.e. from April 12, 2010.
