Anti-dumping

On April 9, 2009, the South African authorities imposed a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of stainless steel sinks following HS code: 7324.1000 from China and Malaysia. The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in China ranges from 0% to 62.41%, depending on the exporting company. The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in Malaysia is 95.86%, at the exception of the company CAM Malaysia whose exports are subject to a duty of 10.74%. This follows the initiation of an anti-dumping investigation in July 2008.

On November 6, 2009, the South African authorities imposed a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of stainless steel sinks from China and Malaysia. The rate of the definitive duty imposed on imports originating in China is similar to the provisional duty, i.e. ranges from 0% to 62.41%, depending on the exporting company. The rate of the definitive duty imposed on imports originating in Malaysia is 95.86%, at the exception of the company CAM Malaysia whose exports are subject to a duty of 10.74%.
 
On September 19, 2014, the South African authorities initiated a sunset review of the above-mentioned anti-dumping measure imposed on November 6, 2009.
This review follows the application lodged on April 30th, 2014 by Franke Kitchen Systems (Pty) Ltd, the major producer of the subject goods in the Southern African Customs Union.
 
On May 29th, 2015, the International Trade Administration Commission (ITAC) of South Africa issued its final findings and recommended the continuation of the existing anti-dumping measure, while modifying the applicable rates. It recommended that individual duties for given companies be removed. Hence, all Chinese exporters would be subject to a duty 62.41% (at the exception of the company Taijing Chuanger Metal Products Co. Ltd. which would not be subject to the duty) and all Malaysian exporters would be subject to a duty of 95.86%.
 
On July 31st, 2015, the South African Revenu Service issued the notification amending the existing measure as explained above.

On 3 July 2020, the South African authorities initiated a sunset review of the definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Malaysia and China. This follows the application lodged on 29 January 2020 by Franke Kitchen Systems (Pty) Ltd.
