Anti-dumping

On December 18, 2008 Australia initiated an anti-dumping investigation on certain hollow structural sections originating in China and Malaysia. The investigation was initiated following the petition from the. Onesteel Australian Tube Mills and Orrcon Operations Pty Ltd. The final dumping decision was taken on June 5, 2009 and was affirmative that dumping has taken place. However, customs found that even if dumping occurred, injury to the domestic industry was negligible.
On September 9, 2009 the investigation into alleged dumping was resumed with an Australian Customs Dumping Notice No. 2009/30 concerning certain hollow structural sections exported from the People's Republic of China and Malaysia: Resumption of investigations into alleged dumping and subsidisation. The decision was issed following the application of June 19, 2009 by the Australian industry manufacturing like goods, comprising OneSteel Australian Tube Mills Pty Ltd (OneSteel) and Orrcon Operations Pty Ltd for a review of Customs and Border Protection's decisions to terminate the investigation as it related to Alpine and Malaysia and a similar application concerning China lodged on June 27, 2009.
As reported by Anti-dumpingpublishing.com on October 8, 2009 "Australia has announced the initiation of a new review of anti-dumping measures on certain hollow structural sections from China."
On 26 August 2010 the Australian authorities announced the termination of this anti-dumping investigation without duties.
