Anti-dumping

The antidumping investigation was initiated on 29 November 2016 (A.D.C No. 50/2016/NTC/PVC). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code subheading: 3904.10.90. This investigation follows the application lodged on 14 October 2016 by Engro Polymer & Chemicals Ltd.

On 13 June 2017, the Pakistani National Tariff Commission imposed a provisional antidumping duty on imports of the subject good from China, Chinese Taipei, the Republic of Korea and Thailand. The rate of duty on imports from China is between 31.98% and 37.43% depending on the company. The rate of duty on imports from Thailand is 36.52%. The rate of duty on imports from Chinese Taipei is 42.41%. The rate of duty on imports from the Republic of Korea is 11.18%.

On 25 April 2018, the Pakistani National Tariff Commission imposed a definitive duty on imports of polyvinyl chloride from China, the Republic of Korea, Chinese Taipei and Thailand. The rate of duty on imports from the Republic of Korea is 4.00% or 14.97% of the C&F value depending on the company. The rate of duty on imports from Chinese Taipei is 16.68% of the C&F value. The rate of duty on imports from Thailand is 13.98% of the C&F value. The rate of duty on imports from China is between 3.44% and 20.47% of the C&F value depending on the company. The duty is in force for a period of five years from 13 June 2018, i.e. on the date provisional duties were imposed. Given that the rate of provisional duties is higher than the definitive duties imposed, companies may apply for refunds equal to the difference between the two antidumping duty levels.
