Anti-subsidy

On February 6, 2008, the Turkish authorities initiated an anti-subsidy investigation on imports of polyethylene terephthalate films (PET films) from India (Notification 2008/8).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 3920.6219, 3920.6900 and 3921.9019.
On August 27, 2008, the Turkish authorities imposed a provisional countervailing duty on imports of PET films originating in India (Notification 2008/30). The rate of the duty ranges from 6.14% to 21.81% of the CIF value, depending on the Indian company and on the exact classification of the good. This provisional duty should be enforced for a period of four months.
On March 22, 2009, the Turkish authorities imposed a definitive countervailing duty on imports of PET films originating in China (Notification 2009/8). The rate of the duty ranges from 4.25% to 21.61% of the CIF value, depending on the Indian company and on the exact classification of the good.

On March 21, 2014, the Turkish authorities initiated a sunset review of the anti-subsidy measure imposed by Notification 2009/8 on March 22, 2009 (Notification 2014/6).
 
On 16 September 2015, the Turkish authorities decided upon the extension of the countervailing measure imposed on imports of polyethylene terephthalate films from India following the above sunset review (Communiqué No. 2015/43). The rate of the applied duty will remain the same.
