Anti-dumping

On February 18, 2013, the Mexican Ministry of Economy decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of synthetic fibre blankets - not electric, printed or not, embroidered or not, with wadding or not - of any size from China.
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 6301.4001 and 9404.9099.
The complaint was lodged on January 22, 2013 by Apolo Textil S.A. and Grupo Textil Providencia S.A. The investigation started on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Federation, i.e. on March 2, 2013.
On August 29, 2013, the Mexican authorities decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of synthetic fibre blankets originating in China. The amount of this provisional duty is the difference between the declared customs value and the reference price of USD 12.10 per net kilogram in case the declared customs value is lower than this reference price. In case the declared customs value is higher than this reference price, no duty is charged. This provisional anti-dumping duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Federation, i.e. on September 10, 2013.
On May 9, 2014, the Mexican authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of synthetic fibre blankets originating in China. The amount of the definitive duty is identical to the provisional duty decided on August 29, 2013, i.e. the difference between the declared customs value and the reference price of USD 12.10 per net kilogram in case the declared customs value is lower than this reference price. This definitive anti-dumping duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Federation, i.e. on May 27, 2014.
