Anti-circumvention

On May 27th, 2015, the Turkish authorities initiated an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of plywood, consisting solely of sheets of wood (each ply not exceeding 6 mm thickness), from Bulgaria and Vietnam (Notification 2015/20, 27.05.2015). This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed by Notification 2012/16 dated July 10th, 2012 on imports of the same products originating in China might be circumvented (see related intervention). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 4412.10, 4412.31, 4412.32 and 4412.39. The complaint was lodged by the Plywood Manufacturers Association (Kontrplak Üreticileri Dernegi - KONÜDER).

On 28 October 2016, the Turkish authorities extended the anti-dumping measure imposed on imports of plywood, consisting solely of sheets of wood (each ply not exceeding 6 mm thickness) from China (see related intervention) to imports of the same product from Bulgaria and Vietnam (Notification 2016/45). The rate of the duty on imports from Bulgaria and Viet Nam is USD 240 per cubic meter. This is with the exception of three companies who are exempt from anti-dumping duties.

On 5 July 2017, the Turkish authorities initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from China. This follows the application lodged by a number of domestic companies. The definitive antidumping duty will remain in force for the duration of the investigation. Since the antidumping measure imposed on imports of the subject good from China was extended to imports of the same products from Viet Nam and Bulgaria, the sunset review and its conclusion will hold for this country as well.

On 22 May 2018, the Turkish authorities extended the antidumping duty imposed on imports of certain plywood from China following the conclusion of the sunset review. As such, the duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Bulgaria and Viet Nam is also extended.
