Anti-dumping

On 29 May 2009, Pakistan initiated an antidumping investigation on imports of phthalic anhydride from Brazil, China, Indonesia, Republic of Korea and Chinese Taipei. The final anti-dumping duty was implemented on 30 September 2010 for Brazil (6.17 percent), China (11.84 percent), Indonesia (5.87 percent), Republic of Korea (7.36 percent) and Chinese Taipei (27.38 percent). According to the WTO semi-annual report on anti-dumping practices implemented by Pakistan dated January 30, 2012, the duty imposed on imports originating in China was no longer enforced as of December 31, 2011. No other details are provided.

On 23 September 2015, the Pakistani National Tariff Commission initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of phthalic anhydride from Brazil, China, Indonesia, Republic of Korea and Chinese Taipei. This follows the request lodged on 11 August 2015 by Nimir Chemicals Pakistan Ltd. The duty will remain in force for the duration of this investigation.

On 28 March 2017, the Pakistani National Tariff Commission terminated the definitive antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Brazil, China, Indonesia, Republic of Korea and Chinese Taipei following the conclusion of the above sunset review. The measure was terminated as the Commission found that there was "no likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumped imports from the Exporting Countries".
