Anti-dumping

On June 16, 2009, the Indian authorities initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of barium carbonate (a harmful, non-flammable inorganic chemical in the form of a white powder and granules having chemical formula BaCo3 manufactured out of barytes) from China.
The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS code: 2836.6000.

On January 7, 2010, the Indian authorities issued their preliminary findings. They recommended the imposition of a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of barium carbonate from China.
This provisional duty was imposed on March 23, 2010 (Notification No. 37/2010-Customs, 23.03.2010). The amount of this provisional duty ranges from USD 121.31 to USD 213.34 per metric ton, depending on the Chinese producer and exporter. This provisional duty is effective upto and inclusive of September 22, 2010.

On December 10, 2010, the Indian authorities issued their final findings and recommended the imposition of a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of barium carbonate originating in China.
This definitive duty was imposed on February 7, 2011 (Notification No. 6/2011-Customs, 07.02.2011). The amount of this definitive duty ranges from USD 76.06 to USD 236.00 per metric ton, depending on the Chinese producer and exporter. 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 March 23, 2010.

On March 19th, 2015, the Indian authorities initiated a sunset review of the above-mentioned anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of barium carbonate from China. This follows the application lodged by the Small Scale Barium Manufacturers Welfare Association on behalf of domestic producers.
On April 22nd, 2015, the Indian authorities issued the notification of provisional extension of the anti-dumping duty imposed by Notification No. 6/2011-Customs dated February 7th, 2011 (Notification No. 15/2015-Customs (ADD), 22.04.2015). This duty remains into force upto and inclusive of March 22th, 2016.
 
On 21 April 2016, following the conclusion the above-mentioned sunset review the Indian Ministry of Finance issued the Customs Notification extending the definitive anti-dumping duty (Notification No. 14/2016-Customs (ADD), 21.04.2016). The amount of the duty imposed on imports of the above good originating in or exported from China is USD 144.82 per metric ton with the exception of the company Hunan Mint Imp & Exp Company Ltd., which is subject to a duty of USD 96.94 per metric ton. This definitive duty is effective for a period of five years.
