Australia imposes anti-dumping tax on galvanized steel imported from Vietnam

Kinhtedothi - According to the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Australia has recently concluded anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations on imported galvanized steel products from Vietnam, India and Malaysia.

According to the Competition Administration Department (Ministry of Industry and Trade), the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission (ADC) has released its Final Report (REP 370) and the competent person (Parliamentary Secretary of the Minister of Industry, Innovation And Science) made the final decision (Announcement No. 2017/99) agreeing with the ADC Member's recommendations on anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations (CTCs) for galvanized steel products Imported from India, Malaysia and Vietnam.

The CTC investigation only applies to India because, on July 17, 1977, the ADC issued a notice (Notice No. 2017/98) terminating the CTC investigation and not applying the CTC measure. With this product imported from Vietnam.
Accordingly, the goods under investigation are zinc coated / galvanized steel HS code: 7210.49.00, 7212.30.00, 7225.92.00 and 7226.99.00. The date of initiation of the investigation is August 16, 2016. Dumping and subsidy investigation phase: 1/7/2015 - 30/6/2016

On May 31, 2017, the ADC issued a preliminary decision and published the substantive data (SEF) of the case.

The ADC used the method of comparing the weighted average of the export price to the weighted average of the corresponding normal value during the investigation period to compare the export price and the usual value from there. Demonstrate dumping behavior and determine dumping margin.

Accordingly, the ADC concludes that the export price is less than the normal value of the goods concerned and thereby causes damage or is likely to cause material injury to Australia's analogous industry ( Reduced profitability, profitability, job cuts, price squeeze, price pressures).
At the same time the ADC concludes that the damage to the galvanized steel industry in Australia is caused by dumped / subsidized imports. Specific dumping margins are as follows:

For Vietnam, the margin of dumping for a cooperative producer is 8.4%; The dumping margin for non-cooperating companies and other exporters was 14.2%.

Earlier, at the announcement of the partial termination of the dumping case for Vietnam, published by the ADC on 17 July 2017 (Announcement No. 2017/98) Nam was excluded from the investigation due to a margin of dumping below the minimum,

For Malaysia, the margin of dumping for co-producers is between 14.5% and 16.5%. Dumping margins for non-cooperating companies and other exporters were 16.5%;

For India, the margin of dumping for co-producers is between 7.6% and 9%. The margin of dumping for non-cooperating companies and other exporters is 12%.
