Review of the anti-dumping duty on polyethylene terephthalate from China

The European Commission has announced in the EU’s Official Journal that an investigation has been opened concerning the impending expiry of the anti-dumping measures on imports of a certain polyethylene terephthalate originating in the People’s Republic of China. A definitive anti-dumping duty, imposed by Regulation (EU) No 1030/2010, is currently in force and will expire shortly.

Expiring anti-dumping measures may be extended

The Committee of Polyethylene Terephthalates (PET) Manufacturers in Europe (CPME) has requested that if the measures are repealed there is a risk of recurrence of dumping and injury to the Union industry. An extension of the measures is therefore not unlikely.

The product under test is polyethylene terephthalate with a viscosity of 78 ml/g or more according to ISO 1628-5, originating in the People’s Republic of China. The goods are currently classified under CN code 3907 60 20.

Participation of interested parties

Interested parties may, with a few exceptions, notify the Commission and participate in the procedure by 19 December 2015. The investigation is expected to be completed within 15 months.
