Anti-dumping

On October 16, 2008, the Indian authorities initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of tyre curing presses (also known as tyre vulcanisers or rubber processing machineries for tyres) from China.

The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 8477.5100.

On March 5, 2009, the Indian authorities issued their preliminary findings and recommended the imposition of a provisional anti-dumping duty. However, no notification was published to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty.

On October 15, 2009, the Indian authorities issued their final findings and recommended the imposition of a definitive anti-dumping duty. This definitive duty was imposed on January 8, 2010 (Notification No. 01/2010-Customs, 08.01.2010). The rate of the duty is 10% of the CIF value.

After M/s Ralson India Ltd. filed an application for a review of the anti-dumping duty imposed by Notification No. 01/2010-Customs dated January 8, 2010 in order to exclude '6 Day Light Bicycle Tyres Curing Presses' from the ambit and scope of the above-mentioned anti-dumping duty, the Indian authorities initiated a mid-term review on May 23, 2011.

On March 29, 2012, the Indian authorities issued the final findings of the mid-term review and recommended to exclude '6 Day Light Bicycle Tyres Curing Presses' from the ambit and scope of the above-mentioned anti-dumping duty. This decision became effective with the publication of Notification No. 26/2012-Customs (ADD) on May 14, 2012.

On January 7, 2015, the Indian authorities initiated a sunset review of the above-mentioned anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of tyre curing presses originating in China. This follows the application lodged by M/s Larsen and Toubro Limited.

On March 3, 2015, the Indian authorities issued the notification of provisional extension of the anti-dumping duty imposed by Notification No. 01/2010-Customs dated 08.01.2010 (Notification No. 06/2015-Customs (ADD), 03.03.2015). This duty remains into force up to and inclusive of January 7, 2016.
 
On 5 January 2016, following the conclusion the above-mentioned sunset review the Indian Directorate General of anti-dumping & allied duties, Ministry of Commerce, issued its final findings and recommended the imposition of a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of tyre curing presses originating in or exported from China.
On 29 March 2016, the Indian Ministry of Finance issued the Customs Notification imposing this definitive anti-dumping duty (Notification No. 11/2016-Customs (ADD), 29.03.2016). The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in or exported from China is 15% of the CIF value. This definitive duty is effective for a period of five years.
