Anti-dumping

On December 8, 2010, the Indian authorities initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of saccharin (a non-nutritive sweetener considered to be low-calorie substitute for cane sugar) from China.
The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS code: 2925.1100.
On December 7, 2011, the Indian authorities issued their final findings of the sunset review. They recommended the continuation of the existing anti-dumping measure.
On January 13, 2012, the Indian authorities issued the notification of extension of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of saccharin from China (Notification No. 7/2012-Customs (ADD), 13.01.2012). The anti-dumping duty is imposed on products classified under the following HS codes: 2925.1100, 2915.1100, 2925.1900, 2925.2990, 2914.2120, 2942.0090, 3004.9099, 3306.9000 and 3824.9090. The amount of the duty is USD 2.69 per kilogram. This duty is effective for a period of five years.
The original anti-dumping duty was decided on January 3, 2007, and imposed by Notification No. 41/2007-Customs on March 19, 2007. The amount of this duty ranged from USD 717.21 to USD 2,151.33 per metric ton, depending on the Chinese producer.
 
On 10 January 2017, the Indian authorities initiated a sunset review of the above-mentioned anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of the subject goods from China.
 
On 19 January 2017, in connection with the above sunset review the Indian Ministry of Finance issued the Customs Notification extending the definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of the subject good originating in or exported from China for one year i.e. until 18 January 2018 (Notification No. 03/2017-Customs (ADD)).

On 30 December 2017, the definitive duty was terminated following the conclusion of the sunset review.
