Anti-dumping

On July 10, 2009, the Indian authorities initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of coumarin from China.
The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS code: 2932.2100.

On January 29, 2010, the Indian authorities issued their preliminary findings and recommended the imposition of a provisional anti-dumping duty. This provisional duty was imposed on March 23, 2010 (Notification No. 38/2010-Customs, 23.03.2010). For details about the amount of the duty, see the table in Notification No. 38/2010. This provisional duty is effective upto and inclusive of September 22, 2010.

On July 7, 2010, the Indian authorities issued their final findings and recommended the imposition of a definitive anti-dumping duty. This definitive duty was imposed on August 20, 2010 (Notification No. 82/2010-Customs, 20.08.2010). For details about the amount of the duty, see the table in Notification No. 82/2010. 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 March 23, 2010.

After the Fragrance and Flavors Association filed an appeal before CESTAT, challenging the continued imposition of anti-dumping duty on imports of coumarin from China according to Notification No. 82/2010-Customs dated August 20, 2010, the Indian authorities reconsidered the case.
They issued the final findings of this second investigation on December 23, 2011, still recommending the imposition of an anti-dumping duty on imports of coumarin from China.

On February 8, 2012, the Indian authorities issued the notification of the new anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of coumarin from China following the re-investigation requested by the Fragrance and Flavors Association (Notification No. 12/2012-Customs (ADD), 08.02.2012). The amount of the duty was not modified and it remains effective for a period of five years with effect from the date of imposition of the provisional anti-dumping duty, i.e. from March 23, 2010.

On March 16, 2015, the Indian authorities initiated a sunset review of the above-mentioned anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of coumarin originating in China. This follows the application lodged by M/s Atlas Fine Chemicals Pvt. Ltd. on behalf of the domestic producers of the subject good.

On April 7, 2015, the Indian authorities issued the notification of provisional extension of the anti-dumping duty imposed by Notification No. 12/2012-Customs (ADD) dated 08.02.2012 (Notification No. 08/2015-Customs (ADD), 07.04.2015). This duty remains into force up to and inclusive of March 22, 2016.
 
On 27 May 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. 20/2016-Customs (ADD), 27.05.2016).
