On May 15th, 2015, the Turkish authorities initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of polyester textured yarn from Thailand and Vietnam (Notification 2015/18, 15.05.2015). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code subheading: 5402.33. The complaint was lodged by Korteks Mensucat San. ve Tic. A.S.
 
On 12 November 2016, the Turkish authorities imposed a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of the subject good from Thailand and Viet Nam. The rate of duty on imports from Thailand is 6.88% or 37.69% of the CIF depending on the company. The rate of duty on imports from Viet Nam is between 34.81% and 72.56% of the CIF depending on the company.

On 4 August 2019, the Turkish authorities initiated a sunset review of the definitive antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Thailand and Viet Nam. This follows the application lodged by Korteks Mensucat Sanayi ve Ticaret Anonim Şirketi. The definitive antidumping duty will remain in force for the duration of the investigation.

Anti-circumvention

On 25 February 2017, the Turkish authorities initiated an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of polyester partially oriented yarn from Thailand and Vietnam (Notification 2017/05). This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive antidumping duty imposed by Notification 2016/40 on imports of polyester textured yarn from Thailand and Vietnam (see related intervention) might be circumvented. Additionally, the investigation follows suspicion that the definitive antidumping duty imposed on imports of polyester textured yarn from Chinese Taipei and India as well as from China, Indonesia and Malaysia might also be circumvented, see related measures. The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code subheading: 5402.46. The products concerned by the possible circumvention are classified under the following HS code subheading: 5402.33.

On 4 August 2017, the Turkish authorities imposed a provisional duty on imports of the subject good from Thailand and Vietnam (Notification 2017/20). The rate of duty on imports from Vietnam is 36.28% of the CIF value. The rate of duty on imports from Thailand is 18.85% of the CIF value.

On 21 June 2018, the Turkish authorities extended the antidumping duty imposed on imports of polyester partially oriented yarn from Thailand and Vietnam (see related intervention) to imports of the same products falling under HS code subheading 5402.46. The rate of duty on imports from Viet Nam is 8%. The rate of duty on imports from Thailand is 8%. The definitive duty is imposed on the date the provisional duty was imposed i.e. 4 August 2017. The difference between the provisional and definitive duty is refunded.

On 4 August 2019, the Turkish authorities initiated a sunset review of the definitive antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Thailand and Vietnam, see related intervention. This follows the application lodged by Korteks Mensucat Sanayi ve Ticaret Anonim Şirketi. The definitive antidumping duty will remain in force for the duration of the investigation. Since the antidumping duty imposed on polyester textured yarn from Thailand and Viet Nam was extended to imports of polyester partially oriented yarn from Thailand and Vietnam falling under HS code 5402.46, the sunset review and its conclusion will hold for these goods as well.
