Anti-dumping

On February 17, 2009, the Indian authorities, in their preliminary findings, found evidence of positive dumping margin. Thus, a provisional anti-dumping duty was imposed on flax fabrics from China and Hong Kong on March 26, 2009 (Notification No. 30/2009 - Customs, 26.03.2009). The products subject to the duty are classified under the following HS code: 5309.0000. The duty follows an antidumping investigation initiated on 3 October 2008.
 
On October 1, 2009, the Indian authorities issued their final findings and recommended the imposition of a definitive anti-dumping duty. This definitive duty was imposed on December 21, 2009 (Notification No.142/2009-Customs, 21.12.2009). This definitive anti-dumping duty took effect from the date of imposition of the provisional anti-dumping duty, that is, March 26, 2009, and is applicable for a period of five years.
 
On March 10, 2014, the Indian authorities initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of flax fabrics from China and Hong Kong.
 
On May 9, 2014, the Indian Ministry of Finance issued a notification to extend the validity of the definitive duty imposed on December 21, 2009 for a further period of one year, i.e. upto and inclusive of March 25, 2015 (No. 17 /2014-Customs (ADD), 09.05.2014).
 
On March 27th, 2015, the Indian authorities extended the time for completing the sunset review up to June 9th, 2015.
 
On June 9th, 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 August 12th, 2015, the Indian Ministry of Finance issued the Customs Notification of extension of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of flax fabrics from China and Hong Kong (Notification No. 39/2015-Customs (ADD), 12.08.2015). The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in China is USD 0.75 per metre. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Hong Kong is USD 0.63 per metre. This duty is effective for a period of five years.

On 23 December 2019, the Indian authorities initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of flax fabrics from China and Hong Kong. This follows the application lodged by Grasim Industries Limited-Jaya Shree Textiles.
