Anti-dumping

On January 22, 2014, the Indian Directorate General of anti-dumping & allied duties, Ministry of Commerce, initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of poly vinyl chloride paste/emulsion resin (also called emulsion PVC resin) from Mexico and Norway.
The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS code: 3904.2210.
This follows the application lodged by M/s Chemplast Sanmar Limited Chennai, one of the two domestic producers of the investigated good.
 
On January 21, 2015, 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 the subject goods originating in Mexico and Norway.
On April 7, 2015, the Indian Ministry of Finance issued the Customs Notification imposing this definitive anti-dumping duty (Notification No. 10/2015-Customs (ADD), 07.04.2015). The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Mexico is USD 429 per metric ton, at the exception of the company Mexichem Resinas Vinilicas, S.A. de C.V. whose exports are subject to a duty of USD 309 per metric ton. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Norway is USD 319 per metric ton.
