China levies anti-dumping duties on cellulose pulp import
Nov '13
The Ministry of Commerce, Government of China, has decided to impose anti-dumping duties on import of cellulose pulp from the US, Canada and Brazil, based on the preliminary findings of anti-dumping investigation initiated in February, 2013.
The preliminary findings found that the cellulose pulp originating in the US had a dumping margin ranging from 18.7 percent to 29.8 percent; margin between 0.7 percent and 50.9 percent for pulp from Canadian companies; and a margin of 6.8 percent to 49.4 percent for pulp from Brazilian companies, a Commerce Ministry statement said.
In view of the substantial damage and material injury caused to China’s domestic pulp industry due to the dumping activities, the Ministry has decided to impose provisional anti-dumping measures on pulp imports from these countries from November 7, 2013, the statement added.
The anti-dumping duties would be imposed based on dumping margins from respective countries.
The anti-dumping investigation covered products classified in the Republic of China Import and Export Tariff No.s 47020000, 47032100, 47061000 and 47063000, pertaining to cellulose pulp and dissolving pulp, used mainly for the production of viscose fibres, such as viscose staple fibre (VSF) and viscose filament yarn (VFY), and other chemical fibres not containing cellulose acetate.
