Anti-dumping

On April 4, 2013, the Indian authorities initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of methylene chloride from the European Union, South Korea and the United States of America.
The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS code: 2903.1200.
The dumping is suspected to have occurred between January 1, 2012, and December 31, 2012.
On October 21, 2013, the Indian authorities imposed a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of methylene chloride from the European Union, South Korea and the United States of America. The amount of the duty ranges from USD 0.32 to USD 0.36 per kilogram for European exporters, depending on the company. The amount of the duty is USD 0.33 per kilogram for US exporters. The amount of the duty is USD 0.21 per kilogram for Korean exporters.
On April 2, 2014, the Indian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of methylene chloride from the European Union, South Korea and the United States of America. This definitive duty was imposed on May 21, 2014 (Notification No.24 /2014-Customs (ADD), 21.05.2014). The amount of the definitive duty is similar to the amount of the provisional one, i.e. ranges from USD 0.32 to USD 0.36 per kilogram for European exporters, depending on the company; is USD 0.33 per kilogram for US exporters and USD 0.21 per kilogram for Korean exporters.
