Anti-dumping

On January 11, 2008, the Turkish authorities initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of tarpaulin made of polyethylene or polypropylene from China and Vietnam (Notification 2008/1). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 3921.9060, 5407.2011 and 5407.2019. The complaint was lodged by Nakpilsa Dokuma Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. and supported by Ekonet Tekstil ve Ambalaj Sanayi Ticaret A.S.

On November 15, 2008, the Turkish authorities imposed a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of tarpaulin made of polyethylene or polypropylene from China and Vietnam (Notification 2008/33). The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in China is USD 1.06 per kilogram. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Vietnam is USD 1.16 per kilogram.

On December 25, 2012, the Turkish authorities redefined the HS codes concerned by the measure (Notification 2012/28). The full list of HS code is as follows: 3921.9060, 3926.9092, 3926.9097, 5407.2011, 5407.2019, 5903.9091 and 6306.1200.

On November 11, 2014, the Turkish authorities decided upon the extension of the anti-dumping measure imposed on imports of tarpaulin made of polyethylene or polypropylene originating in China and Vietnam. The goods subject to the duty are classified under the following HS codes: 3921.9060, 3926.9092, 3926.9097, 5407.2011, 5407.2019, 5903.9091 and 6306.1200. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in China remains USD 1.06 per kilogram. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Vietnam remains USD 1.16 per kilogram.

On 8 November 2019, the Turkish authorities initiated a sunset review of the definitive antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from China and Viet Nam. This follows the application lodged by Ekonet Tekstil ve Ambalaj San. ve Tic. A.Ş., CNC Ambalaj San. ve Tic. A.Ş. and RAD Tekstil San. Tic. A.Ş.
