The product subject to investigation is classified under HS code 3204.1739 and is also being imported under the following HS codes: 3204.1111, 3204.1630, 3204.1711, 3204.1719, 3204.1720, 3204.1760, 3204.1973, 3204.1984, 3204.9000, 3206.1110 and 3206.4990.
This follows the application lodged by M/s Heubach Colour Private Limited, the sole domestic producer of the subject good.
