Media Release : Initiation Of Investigation On Anti-Dumping Concerning Imports Of Cold Rolled Stainless Steel Originating In Or Exported By Chinese Taipei, French Republic, Hong Kong, Japan, The People’s Republic Of China, Republic Of Finland, Republic Of Indonesia, Republic Of Korea And Socialist Republic Of Viet Nam
The Government of Malaysia has received a petition from a domestic producer for the imposition of anti-dumping duty on imports of cold rolled stainless steel (CRSS) on 30 March 2015. The Petitioner alleged that imports of CRSS originating in, or exported from, the Chinese Taipei, French Republic, Hong Kong, Japan, the People’s Republic of China, Republic of Finland, Republic of Indonesia, Republic of Korea and Socialist Republic of Viet Nam are being dumped into Malaysia at a price much lower than the price in the domestic market of the alleged countries and that this is causing material injury to the domestic industry in Malaysia.
The Petitioner further claimed that imports from the alleged countries have increased in terms of absolute quantity and that the Petitioner suffered material injury. The Government has determined that there is sufficient evidence of dumping, injury and causal link. The Government has therefore decided to initiate a preliminary investigation on imports of CRSS from these countries.
In accordance with the Countervailing and Anti-Dumping Duties Act 1993 and its related Regulations, a preliminary determination will be made within 120 days from the date of initiation. If the preliminary determination is affirmative, the Government will impose an anti-dumping duty at the rate that is necessary to prevent further injury.
In connection with this investigation, MITI will provide a set of questionnaires to the interested parties (importers, foreign producers, exporters and associations). Other interested parties may request for the questionnaires no later than 14 May 2015. Interested parties may also provide additional supporting evidence to MITI on, or before, 28 May 2015. In the event no additional information is received within the specified period, the Government will make its preliminary findings based on the available facts.
