Anti-dumping

On April 22, 2014 the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of newsprint in roll or sheet form, having a weight within the range 40 grams per square meter (gsm) to 46 gsm (inclusive) and brightness below a measure of 70 ISO, from France and South Korea (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2014/34, 22.04.2014).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 4801.0031, 4801.0039 and 4801.2220.
The complaint was lodged on March 24, 2014 by Norske Skog Industries Australia Limited.
 
On August 8, 2014, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission extended the time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2014/67).
 
On October 29, 2014, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission extended again the time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2014/109, 29.10.2014).
 
On December 18, 2014, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission further extended the time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2014/139, 18.12.2014).
 
On January 27, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission issued the Statement of Essential Facts (SEF Report No. 242, 27.01.2015). It recommended the imposition of an anti-dumping duty on imports of the subject goods originating in France and the termination of the investigation as far as South Korea as exporting country is concerned.
 
On January 30, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of the subject goods originating in France (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/12, 30.01.2015). The rate of the duty is 5.1%.
 
On March 20, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission officially terminated the investigation concerning imports originating in South Korea without imposing any duty (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/29, 20.03.2015). Reason for termination is that for one exporter (Jeonju Paper Corporation) dumping did not take place, while for the remaining Korean exporters, although prices were dumped, the material injury to the Australian industry was negligible.
