Anti-dumping

On August 28, 2013 the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of wind towers, whether or not tapered, and sections thereof (whether exported assembled or unassembled), and whether or not including an embed being a tower foundation section, from China and Korea (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2013/68, 28.08.2013).
 
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7308.2000, 7308.9000, 8502.3110 and 8502.3190.
 
The complaint was lodged on August 6, 2013 by Haywards Steel Fabrication & Construction and Keppel Prince Engineering Pty Ltd.
 
On December 6, 2013 the Australian authorities decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on the products under investigation (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2013/95, 06.12.2013). The rate of duty is 12.1% for Korean companies and 16.2% for Chinese companies.
 
On April 14, 2014 the Australian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on the products under investigation (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2014/33, 16.04.2014). The rate of the ad valorem duty ranges from 15.0% to 15.6% of the export price for Chinese companies and from 17.2% to 18.8% for Korean companies. Notice of the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Industry's decision was published in the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette on April 16, 2014.

On 16 July 2018, the Australian authorities initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from China and the Republic of Korea. This follows the application lodged on 22 June 2018 by  Keppel Prince Engineering Pty Ltd.

On 27 March 2019, the Australian authorities extended the definitive duty imposed on imports of wind towers from China following the conclusion of the sunset review. The rate of duty is 6.4% and 10.9%. The definitive duty was terminated on imports from Korea.
