Anti-dumping

On August 13, 2010 the European Commission initiated an anti-dumping investigation into alleged dumping of fatty alcohols and their blends originating from India, Indonesia and Malaysia. The investigation follows a complaint lodged on June 30, 2010 by two producers, Cognis GmbH and Sasol Olefins & Surfactants GmbH. The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code subheadings: ex 2905.16.85, 2905.17.00, ex 2905.19.00 and ex 3823.70.00.

On 12 May 2011 the Commission imposed provisional duty on imports of the subject good from Malaysia, India and Indonesia. The rate of duty on imports from India is 4.8% or 9.3% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty depending on the company. The rate of duty on imports from Indonesia is between 4.3% and 7.6 of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty depending on the company. The rate of duty on imports from Malaysia is between 5% and 13.8 of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty depending on the company. The duty is in force for a period of 6 months.

On 12 November 2011, the European Commission imposed a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of fatty alcohols from India, Indonesia and Malaysia. The rate of duty on imports from India is EUR 46.98 or 86.99 per tonne (USD 64.6 or 119.62 per tonne) depending on the company. The rate of duty on imports from Indonesia is EUR 45.63 or 80.34 per tonne (USD 62.74 or 110.42 per tonne) depending on the company. The rate of duty on imports from Malaysia is between EUR 35.19 and 61.01 per tonne (between USD 48.39 and 83.89 per tonne) depending on the company.
