On February 28, 2013, the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment received an application for a dumping investigation from Croxley Stationery Limited, claiming that imports of diaries from the Republic of Korea are being dumped and have caused material injury to the New Zealand industry. Following this complaint, an investigation was initiated on June 11, 2013. The exact definition of the imported good under scrutiny is diaries, with or without covers, containing a written record of daily/weekly/yearly events, appointments, reference material and observations, having the following specifications: - Height: Not less than 100mm and not more than 305mm; - Width: Not less than 74mm and not more than 220mm; - Leaf: Not less than 6 and not more than 400; - Pages: Not less than 12 and not more than 800; - Paper weight: Not less than 45gsm and not more than 200gsm; - Binding: Stapled, sewn, glued or wire bound; Excluding dayplanner organisers with steel ringbinders. The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 4820.1000. On December 5, 2013, the New Zealand Minister of Commerce decided to terminate the investigation on imports of diaries from Korea with the conclusion that there is insufficient evidence that material injury to a New Zealand industry has been or is being caused or is threatened by means of the dumping of the goods. This decision has been published in the New Zealand Gazette on December 12, 2013.
