ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
On November 6, 2014 the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports offlat electric cables, comprising two copper conductor cores and an 'earth' (copper) core (with a nominal conductor cross sectional area of between 2.5 mm2 included and 3 mm2 included), insulated and sheathed with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) materials, and suitable for connection to mains electricity power installations at voltages exceeding 80 V but not exceeding 1000 V, from China (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2014/118, 06.11.2014).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 8544.4920. They are commonly referred to as 'building wire', because of its use by the building and construction industry in domestic, commercial and industrial mains power supply low-voltage wiring installations.
The complaint was lodged on September 3, 2014 by Olex Australia Pty Ltd.
On January 19, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of the subject goods originating in China (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/09, 19.01.2015). The rate of the duty ranges from 6.4% to 10.3%, depending on the exporting company. The Chinese company Dongguan Minxing Cables Co., Ltd. is exempted from this duty due to a negligible dumping margin.
On February 24, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission extended the time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/24, 24.02.2015).
On May 25th, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission issued the Statement of Essential Facts (SEF Report No. 271, 25.05.2015). It recommended to terminate the investigation.
On July 9th, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission terminated the investigation without imposing any definitive anti-dumping measure (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/85, 09.07.2015). Reason for this decision is that, depending on which Chinese company is concerned, there was either no dumping, or de minimis dumping, or negligible effect on the Australian domestic industry.
