Anti-dumping Measures Taken Against Korean, Thai and Malaysian Copolymer Imports
The Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) has preliminarily affirmed incidences of dumping with regard to imports of polyformaldehyde copolymer from three countries – South Korea, Thailand and Malaysia. As a consequence, temporary anti-dumping measures have been enacted against the three countries in accordance with Article 28 and Article 29 of the Anti-dumping Regulations. Henceforth, as of 30 June 2017, all of the relevant importers will be obliged to pay a designated margin to China Customs, in accordance with the margin ratio determined for each company under the terms of the preliminary ruling, when importing any of the products within the remit of the investigation.
The ruling follows the preliminary findings of investigations into imports of polyformaldehyde copolymer from South Korea, Thailand and Malaysia. The investigation followed MOFCOM’s decision of 24 October 2016 to formally initiate an anti-dumping investigation.
The product under investigation is known under a number of terms, including Polyformaldehyde Copolymer, Polyoxymethylene Copolymer, Copolymer-type Acetal Resin and Acetal Copolymer, It is also frequently referred to in the abbreviated form of POM Copolymer.
