Anti-dumping

On November 20, 2007, the Indian authorities initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of digital versatile discs recordable (DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW) from China, Hong Kong and Chinese Taipei.
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 8523.2920, 8523.2950, 8523.2970, 8523.4040, 8523.4050, 8523.4060, 8523.4080, 8523.4090, 8523.8090, 8523.5290, 8523.8050, 8523.9010, 8523.9040, 8523.9050 and 8523.9090.
On June 16, 2008, the Indian authorities in their preliminary findings found evidence of positive dumping margin. Thus, a provisional anti-dumping duty was imposed on July 23, 2008 (Notification No. 89/2008 - Customs, 23.07.2008).
On November 19, 2008, the Indian authorities issued their final findings and recommended the imposition of a definitive anti-dumping duty. This definitive duty was imposed on January 22, 2009 (Notification No.8/2009-Customs, 22.01.2009). This definitive anti-dumping duty took effect from the date of imposition of the provisional anti-dumping duty, that is, July 23, 2008.
On July 18, 2013, the Indian authorities initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of digital versatile discs recordable from China, Hong Kong and Chinese Taipei.
On August 29, 2013, the Indian Ministry of Finance issued a notification to extend the validity of the definitive duty imposed on January 22, 2009 for a further period of one year, i.e. upto and inclusive of July 22, 2014 (No. 19/2013-Customs (ADD), 29.08.2013).
On October 14, 2014, the Indian Directorate General of anti-dumping & allied duties, Ministry of Commerce, issued its final findings and recommended that the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of digital versatile discs originating in China, Hong Kong and Chinese Taipei be prolonged. The extension should only apply to non-rewritable DVDs (that is DVD+/-R) after the domestic industry withdrew its request for continuation of the duty on rewritable DVDs (that is DVD+/-RW).
On November 21, 2014, the Indian Ministry of Finance issued the Customs Notification extending for five years this anti-dumping duty, only for non-rewritable DVDs +/-R (Notification No. 45/2014-Customs (ADD), 21.11.2014). The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in China and in Hong Kong is USD 36.67 per 1,000 pieces. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Chinese Taipei is USD 22.39 per 1,000 pieces.
