Anti-dumping

On October 14, 2011, the Indian authorities initiated a second sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of sodium hydrosulphite (also described as hydrosulphite concentrate, sodium dithionite and sodium hydrosulfite) from China. The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS codes: 2832.1020 and 2831.1010.

On October 3, 2012, the Indian authorities issued their final findings of the sunset review. They recommended the continuation of the existing anti-dumping measure.

On December 14, 2012, the Indian authorities issued the notification of extension of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of sodium hydrosulphite from China (Notification No. 55/2012-Customs (ADD), 14.12.2012). The amount of the duty is USD 435.39 per metric ton. This duty is effective for a period of five years.

The original anti-dumping duty was decided on September 13, 2001 and imposed by Notification No. 114/2001-Customs on November 2, 2001. The amount of the duty was USD 294.17 per metric ton, at the exception of the company M/s Guangdong Zhongcheng Chemicals Co. Ltd. whose exports were subject to a duty of USD 216.33 per metric ton. A first sunset review was already initiated on October 5, 2005 and terminated on September 6, 2006 with the continuation of the duty. The extended duty was imposed by Notification No. 108/2006-Customs on October 16, 2006. For details about the amount of the duty, see table of Notification No. 108/2006-Customs.

On 13 December 2017, the definitive duty was terminated as no sunset review was initiated and the duty, therefore, expired.
