Anti-dumping

On January 22, 2010, the Turkish authorities initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of glass fiber reinforcement materials from China (Notification 2010/3).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7019.1100, 7019.1200, 7019.1910, 7019.1990, 7019.3100, 7019.9091 and 7019.9099.
The complaint was lodged by Cam Elyaf Sanayii A.S.

On July 21, 2010, the Turkish authorities imposed a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of glass fiber reinforcement materials originating in China (Notification 2010/19). The rate of the duty is 38% of the CIF value.

On December 31, 2010, the Turkish authorities imposed a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of glass fiber reinforcement materials originating in China (Notification 2011/1).The rate of the duty is 23.75% of the CIF value, at the exception of the company Chongqing Polycomp International Corporation whose exports are subject to a duty of 20.20%.

On April 25th, 2014, the Turkish authorities initiated an interim review of the anti-dumping measure imposed by Notification 2011/1 on December 31st, 2010 (Notification 2014/13, 25.05.2014).

On April 17th, 2015, the Turkish authorities concluded the interim review initiated on April 25th, 2014 and decided upon the continuation of the anti-dumping measure while modifying the rate of the duty (Notification 2015/5, 17.04.2015). The modified rate of the duty is 35.75% of the CIF value, at the exception of the company Chongqing Polycomp International Corporation whose exports are now subject to a duty of 24.50%.

Anti-circumvention

On 24 October 2019, the Turkish authorities initiated an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of glass fibre reinforcement materials from Thailand. This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive antidumping duty imposed by Notification 2011/1 and extended by Notification 2016/48 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 code subheadings: 7019.11, 7019.12, 7019.19, 7019.31, 7019.90.00.10.00, ad 7019.90.00.30.00.

On 24 March 2021, the Turkish authorities extended the antidumping duty imposed on imports of glass fibre reinforcement materials from China (see related intervention) to imports of the same good from Thailand following the conclusion of the anti-circumvention investigation. The rate of duty is 35.75% of the CIF value.
