Anti-dumping

On October 28, 2013, the Indian Directorate General of anti-dumping & allied duties, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of phenol from South Africa. The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS codes: 2907.11 and 2707.99 (formerly 2707.60 under HS version 2002).
This review follows the application lodged by M/s Hindustan Organic Chemicals Limited and SI Group India Ltd., the sole domestic producers of the subject good.
 
While initiating the sunset review, the Indian authorities decided on November 12, 2013 to extend up to October 30, 2014 the existing definitive anti-dumping duty imposed on October 31, 2008 by Notification No. 114/2008-Customs and confirmed on May 3, 2013 by Notification No. 10/2013-Customs (ADD) (Notification No. 31/2013-Customs (ADD), 13.11.2013). The amount of this duty is USD 119 per metric ton.
 
On November 7th, 2014, the Indian authorities extended the time for completing the sunset review up to April 27th, 2015.
 
On April 27th, 2015, the Indian Directorate General of anti-dumping & allied duties, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, issued its final findings of the sunset review. It recommended the continuation of the existing anti-dumping measure.
 
On July 10th, 2015, the Indian Ministry of Finance issued the Customs Notification of extension of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of phenol from South Africa (Notification No. 32/2015-Customs (ADD), 10.07.2015). The amount of the duty is USD 342.76 per metric ton.
This duty is effective for a period of five years.
 
The original anti-dumping duty on imports originating not only in South Africa but in the European Union and Singapore as well was decided on February 13, 2003 and imposed on March 24, 2003 (Notification No. 47/2003-Customs, 24.03.2003).
After a first sunset review that ended on August 4, 2008, it was then extended for five more years on October 31, 2008 (Notification No. 114/2008-Customs, 31.10.2008).
On December 8, 2011, the Indian Directorate General of anti-dumping & allied duties, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, initiated a mid-term review of the duty imposed on October 31, 2008. Notably prior to the decision to extend the duty, on May 3, 2013, the Indian Ministry of Finance issued the Customs Notification modifying Notification No. 114/2008-Customs dated 31.10.2008. With this modification, the duty only applies to imports originating in South Africa and no longer on imports originating in the European Union and Singapore.

On 27 December 2019, the Indian authorities initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from South Africa. This follows the application lodged by Deepak Phenolics Ltd., SI Group India Pvt. Ltd. and Hindustan Organics Chemical Ltd.
