On August 28, 2013 the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of wind towers, whether or not tapered, and sections thereof (whether exported assembled or unassembled), and whether or not including an embed being a tower foundation section, from China and Korea (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2013/68, 28.08.2013).
 
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7308.2000, 7308.9000, 8502.3110 and 8502.3190.
 
The complaint was lodged on August 6, 2013 by Haywards Steel Fabrication & Construction and Keppel Prince Engineering Pty Ltd.
 
On December 6, 2013 the Australian authorities decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on the products under investigation (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2013/95, 06.12.2013).
