Anti-dumping

On June 21st, 2013, the Indian Directorate General of anti-dumping & allied duties, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of USB flash drives from China, Chinese Taipei and South Korea.
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 8523.5100.
This follows the application lodged by the Storage Media Products Manufacturers & Marketers Welfare Association on behalf of Moser Baer, the sole domestic producer of the subject goods.
 
On December 19th, 2014, the Indian Directorate General of anti-dumping & allied duties, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, issued its final findings and recommended the imposition of a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of USB flash drives from China and Chinese Taipei. The investigation concerning imports originating in South Korea was terminated (due to de minimis imports).
 
On May 22nd, 2015, the Indian Ministry of Finance issued the Customs Notification imposing this definitive anti-dumping duty (Notification No. 22/2015-Customs (ADD), 22.05.2015).

The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in China is USD 3.12 per piece. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Chinese Taipei is USD 3.06 per piece.
