Anti-circumvention

On December 4, 2007, the Turkish authorities initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of pencils with leads of graphite and pencils with leads of crayons encased in a rigid sheath from China (see related intervention). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 9609.1000. Since the antidumping duty imposed on imports of granites from China was extended to imports of the same products from Thailand, the sunset review and its conclusion will hold for this country as well.

The antidumping duty was extended to imports of the subject good from Thailand on 14 April 2007. The rate of duty was set at USD 3.16 per 144 pieces.

On December 18, 2008, the Turkish authorities extended the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from China following the conclusion of the sunset review. As such, the duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Thailand is also extended.
 
On December 17, 2013, the Turkish authorities initiated a new sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of pencils with leads of graphite and pencils with leads of crayons encased in a rigid sheath from China (see related intervention). Since the antidumping duty imposed on imports of granites from China was extended to imports of the same products from Thailand, the sunset review and its conclusion will hold for this country as well.
 
On August 9, 2014, the Turkish authorities extended the antidumping duty on imports of the subject good from China (see related intervention). As such, the duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Thailand is also extended.

Anti-circumvention

On 19 June 2018, the Turkish authorities initiated an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of pencils with leads of graphite and pencils with lead of crayons encased in a rigid sheath from Egypt (Notification No. 2018/24). This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive antidumping duty imposed on imports of the same products originating in China might be circumvented (see related intervention). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code subheading: 9609.10.
