Anti-dumping

On August 20th, 2010, the Indian Directorate General of anti-dumping & allied duties, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of disodium carbonate, popularly known as soda ash, from China, the European Union, Iran, Kenya, Pakistan, Ukraine and the United States of America.
The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS code: 2836.20.
The complaint was lodged by the Alkali Manufacturers' Association of India (AMAI).
 
On September 2nd, 2011, the Indian Directorate General of anti-dumping & allied duties, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, issued its preliminary findings and recommended the imposition of a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of soda ash from China, the European Union, Iran, Kenya, Pakistan, Ukraine and the United States of America.
However, no provisional duty was imposed by the Indian Ministry of Finance, Department of Revenue.
 
On December 23rd, 2011, the Indian authorities extended the time for completing the investigation up to February 19th, 2012.
 
On February 17th, 2012, the Indian Directorate General of anti-dumping & allied duties, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, issued its final findings and recommended the imposition of a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of soda ash from China, the European Union, Iran, Kenya, Pakistan, Ukraine and the United States of America.
 
On July 3rd, 2012, the Indian Ministry of Finance issued the Customs Notification imposing this definitive anti-dumping duty (Notification No. 34/2012-Customs (ADD), 03.07.2012).
The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in China is USD 36.26 per metric ton. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Ukraine is USD 15.64 per metric ton. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in the European Union is USD 9.17 per metric ton. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Iran is USD 28.86 per metric ton. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in the United States of America is USD 38.79 per metric ton. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Pakistan is USD 10.34 per metric ton, at the exception of the companies Olympia Chemical Limited and ICI Pakistan Limited whose exports are subject to a duty of USD 2.38 and USD 5.60 per metric ton respectively. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Kenya is USD 28.86 per metric ton, at the exception of the company Tata Chemicals Magadi Limited whose exports are subject to a duty of USD 20.35 per metric ton.
This definitive duty is effective for a period of five years.
 
On July 21st, 2015, the Indian Directorate General of anti-dumping & allied duties, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, initiated a mid-term review of the above-mentioned anti-dumping measure.
This review follows the application lodged by the All India Glass Manufacturers' Federation (AIGMF), a representative body of importers/users of the subject goods. They have claimed that the circumstances that were prevalent during the period of investigation of the original investigation have changed significantly, leading to a situation where the existing anti-dumping measure is no longer warranted.

On 16 June 2017, the Indian Directorate General of Antidumping & Allied Duties, Ministry of Commerce and Industry initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on the subject good from China, the European Union, Kenya, Pakistan, Iran, Ukraine and the United States. This follows the application lodged by Nirma Ltd and DCW Ltd. The sunset review is subject to the outcome of the abovementioned midterm review.

On 30 June 2016, the Indian Ministry of Finance issued the Customs Notification extending the definitive anti-dumping duty for one year i.e. until 2 July 2018.

On 22 July 2017, the Indian authorities concluded the midterm review and recommended the discontinuation of definitive antidumping duties. As the initiation of the above sunset review is subject to the outcome of this review, the sunset review is rescinded by order issued on 22 July 2017 by the Indian authorities. As such, the definitive duty is terminated as of 3 July 2017.
