On 27 August 2015, the Government of Malaysia initiated an anti-dumping investigation based on a petition filed by CSC Steel Sdn. Bhd. on behalf of the domestic industry producing Cold Rolled Coils of Alloy and Non-Alloy Steel (CRC). The petitioner alleges that imports of CRC originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China, Republic of Korea and the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam are being imported into Malaysia at a price lower than the selling price in the domestic market of the alleged countries. The petitioner claimed that this is causing material injury to the domestic industry in Malaysia.
The Government has completed the preliminary investigation as provided under Section 23 of the Countervailing and Anti-Dumping Duties Act 1993 and found that there is sufficient evidence to continue with further investigation on the importation of CRC from the alleged countries.
The Government of Malaysia has decided to impose a provisional measure, which shall be in the form of provisional anti-dumping duties guaranteed by a security equivalent to the amount of the dumping margin determined in the preliminary investigation. Provisional anti-dumping duties ranging from 4.58% to 23.78% will be applied on imports from the alleged countries and shall be effective not more than 120 days from 25 January 2016.
Based on the findings of the investigation, a final determination will be made no later than 23 May 2016. Interested parties, such as importers, foreign producers/exporters and associations related to the investigation can have access to the non-confidential version of the public report on the preliminary determination by submitting a written request to the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI):
