China imposes anti-dumping duty on import of viscose pulp

Apr '14
The Ministry of Commerce, Government of China, has issued its Notice No. 18 of 2014, which says anti-dumping duties would be levied for a period of five years on imports of cellulose (viscose) pulp for a period of five years beginning April 6, 2014.
 
In its final ruling, the Department of Commerce found that pulp originating in the United States, Canada and Brazil is causing substantial damage to the Chinese domestic pulp industry.
 
From April 6, 2014, importers shall pay the anti-dumping duty on imported pulp products from the US, Canada and Brazil to the China Customs, the Ministry of Commerce statement said.
 
For pulp imported from the US, the anti-dumping duty rate would be between 16.9 percent and 33.5 percent, while the rate for imports from Canada would range from zero to 23.7 percent, and imports from Brazil would be levied duty in the range of 6.8 percent to 11.5 percent.
 
However, the Ministry has exempted products from Brazil-based Bahia Specialty Cellulose from anti-dumping duty.
 
The viscose pulp, classified under China Import and Export Tariff No.s 47020000, 47061000 and 47063000, would fall under the new taxes.
 
Viscose pulp is mainly used for the production of viscose fibres, such as viscose staple fibre, viscose filament yarn and other chemical fibres, excluding acetate.
 
The Ministry of Commerce had launched an anti-dumping probe on imported cellulose fibre on February 6, 2013, and a preliminary decision to impose anti-dumping duty on imports of these products from the US, Canada and Brazil was taken on November 6, 2013.
