According to statement from Boykan Customs Consultancy’ via the Turkish Plastics Industry Foundation (PAGEV), Turkey’s Ministry of Economy and Board of Evaluation of Unfair Competition in Imports have decided to change anti dumping rates on American and German S- PVC. The new rates came into effect as of July 10, 2015 following the publication in the Official Gazette under a statement for preventing unfair competition in imports (2015/24).

Previously, the local producer Petkim applied to the Ministry of Economy for a final review investigation (NGGS) with the claim that, in an event that the precautions against dumping which still applies in the import of American and German origins for suspension type polyvinyl chloride (PVC-S) are abolished, this would cause continuance of dumping and financial losses would either continue or reoccur. Upon the request of Petkim, the Ministry opened an investigation as a result of which the Ministry has decided that the continuance or repeat of losses stemming from any abolishment of the dumping precautions for American and German origins for S-PVC was probable.

Under the new application, anti dumping rates on American and German S-PVC with HS Code 3904. will be set at 18.81% of the CIF value for American origins and 16.64% of CIF value for German origins. Previously, the precaution against dumping had been set at rates which varied by producer and ranged between $25-45/ton for Germany and at the rate of $45/ton for the USA.
