Anti-dumping

On July 6, 2007, the Indian authorities initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of certain types of rubber chemicals from China and South Korea: MBT, CBS, TDQ, PVI, PX-13(6PPD) and TMT from China and PX-13(6PPD) from South Korea.
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 2902, 2907, 2909, 2917, 2921, 2925, 2930, 2933, 2934, 2935, 2942, 3811, 3812 and 3815.
On February 28, 2008, the Indian authorities issued their preliminary findings and recommended the imposition of a provisional anti-dumping duty. This provisional duty was imposed on May 5, 2008 (Notification No. 61/2008-Customs, 05.05.2008). For details about the amount of the duty, see the table in Notification No. 61/2008. This provisional duty is effective upto and inclusive of November 4, 2008.
On October 1, 2008, the Indian authorities issued their final findings and recommended the imposition of a definitive anti-dumping duty. This definitive duty was imposed on December 12, 2008 (Notification No. 133/2008-Customs, 12.12.2008). For details about the amount of the duty, see the table in Notification No. 133/2008. This definitive duty is effective for a period of five years with effect from the date of imposition of the provisional anti-dumping duty, i.e. from May 5, 2008.
On April 30, 2013, the Indian authorities initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of the above-mentioned rubber chemicals from China and South Korea.
On July 5, 2013, the Indian authorities decided to extend upto and inclusive of May 4, 2014 the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed on December 12, 2008 by Notification No. 133/2008-Customs (Notification No. 16/2013-Customs, 05.07.2013).
On April 29, 2014, the Indian authorities issued their final findings of the sunset review. They recommended the continuation of the existing anti-dumping duty on imports of the above-mentioned rubber chemicals from China and South Korea.
On July 24, 2014, the Indian authorities issued the notification of extension of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of rubber chemicals from China and South Korea (Notification No. 35/2014-Customs (ADD), 24.07.2014). The amount of the duty ranges from USD 0.55 to USD 1.84 per kilogram, depending on the exact characteristics of the good and on the producing/exporting company. For details about the amount of the duty, see Table 1 of Notification No. 35/2014-Customs (ADD). This duty is effective for a period of five years.
