Anti-dumping

On February 20th, 2015, the Colombian Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of high-pressure decorative laminates from India (Resolution 028, 20.02.2015). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 3921.9010. The complaint was lodged on December 4, 2014 by Lamitech S.A.S. on behalf of the national industry. The investigation started on the day of the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Republic of Colombia, i.e. on February 23, 2015.
 
On April 24th, 2015, the Colombian Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism issued its preliminary findings and decided to continue the investigation without imposing a provisional anti-dumping duty (Resolution 068, 24.04.2015). Resolution 068 was published in the Official Journal of the Republic of Colombia on April 30th, 2015.
 
On 9 December 2015, the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism imposed a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of high-pressure decorative laminates from India. The products subject to duties are classified under the following HS code subheading: 3921.90.10.00. The amount of the duty is the difference between the FOB price declared by the importer and the reference FOB price set at USD 3.34 per kilogram. The duty is due only if the FOB declared by the importer is lower than this reference FOB. The definitive duty is in force for a period of three years.

On 8 November 2018, the Colombian authorities initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from India. This follows the application lodged by LAMITECH S.A.S. The definitive antidumping duty remains in force for the duration of the review.
