Anti-dumping Actions

Anti-dumping Actions
30 November 2007


Commodity: 1-cyanoguanidine (dicyandiamide), falling within CN code 2926 20 00. It is a solid substance in the form of a fine, white, crystalline powder, usually odorless. It is produced from quick lime and carbon black, and appears after several production steps.

 

Countries/Economies: Chinese mainland


Action: On 15 November 2007, the Official Journal published Regulation 1331/2007 imposing a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of dicyandiamide originating in the Chinese mainland.
It is recalled that the anti-dumping proceeding was initiated on 17 August 2006 based on a complaint lodged by AlzChem GmbH, representing 100% of the Community production of the product concerned.
It was concluded that the dumped imports originating in the Chinese mainland have caused material injury to the Community industry and that there are no compelling reasons on the grounds of Community interest not to impose anti-dumping measures.
Therefore, definitive anti-dumping duties were imposed on imports of dicyandiamide from the Chinese mainland.


Rates: The rate of duty amounts to 49.1%. It was found that the injury elimination level is lower than the dumping margin established. Therefore, the definitive measures are based on the injury elimination level.


Dates: The Regulation entered into force on 16 November 2007.

 

 



Commodity: plastic sacks and bags, containing at least 20% by weight of polyethylene and of sheeting of a thickness not exceeding 100 micrometers, falling within CN codes ex 3923 21 00, ex 3923 29 10 and ex 3923 29 90 (TARIC codes 3923 21 00 20, 3923 29 10 20 and 3923 29 90 20).


Countries/Economies: Chinese mainland, Thailand

 

Action: On 22 November 2007, the Official Journal published Regulation 1356/2007 amending Regulation 1425/2006 imposing a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of certain plastic sacks and bags originating in the Chinese mainland and Thailand, and terminating the proceeding on imports of certain plastic sacks and bags originating in Malaysia.


It is recalled that by Regulation 1425/2006, the Council imposed a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports into the Community of certain plastic sacks and bags originating in the Chinese mainland and Thailand. Given the large number of cooperating parties, a sample of Chinese and Thai exporting producers was selected and individual duty rates ranging from 4.8% to 14.3% were imposed on the companies included in the sample, while other cooperating companies not included in the sample were attributed a duty rate of 8.4% for the Chinese mainland and 7.9% for Thailand. Duty rates of 28.8% for the Chinese mainland and 14.3% for Thailand were imposed on companies which either did not make themselves known or did not cooperate with the investigation.


The Regulation provided that where any exporting producer in the Chinese mainland or Thailand provides sufficient evidence to the Commission that it is a new exporter, he may be granted the duty rate applicable to the cooperating companies not included in the sample, i.e. 8.4% for Chinese companies and 7.9% for Thai companies.


Nine companies (six Chinese and three Thai) have applied to be granted the same treatment as the companies cooperating in the original investigation not included in the sample (new exporting producer treatment). However, except for one company, POLY PLAST (THAILAND) CO., LTD, none was granted the new exporter treatment.


In addition, it has also been brought to the attention of the Commission's services that the terminology 'thickness of a bag' used for the product concerned in the Regulation 1425/2006 could cause confusion during the customs clearance process. It has therefore been decided to provide a more specific definition of this issue in Regulation 1356/2007.


Dates: The Regulation entered into force on 23 November 2007.
