Anti-dumping

On April 9, 2013, the Indian authorities initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of diclofenac sodium from China. The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS code: 2942.0090. This sunset review follows the application lodged by M/s Aarti Drugs Ltd. and M/s Amoli Organics Pvt. Ltd. on behalf of the domestic producers of diclofenac sodium.

While initiating the sunset review, the Indian authorities decided on November 13, 2013 to extend the existing anti-dumping duty upto and inclusive of April 9, 2014 (Notification No. 31/2013-Customs (ADD), 13.11.2013). On May 9, 2014, the Indian authorities extended the time for completing the review up to July 8, 2014. On July 23, 2014, the Indian authorities extended again the time for completing the review up to October 8, 2014.

On October 2, 2014, the Indian Directorate General of anti-dumping & allied duties, Ministry of Commerce, issued its final findings and recommended that the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of diclofenac sodium originating in China be prolonged.

On November 21, 2014, the Indian Ministry of Finance issued the Customs Notification extending for five years this anti-dumping duty (Notification No. 44/2014-Customs (ADD), 21.11.2014). The amount of the duty is USD 2,715 per metric ton.

The duty was terminated on 20 November 2019.
