Pakistan’s National Tariff Commission has announced that it has determined preliminary antidumping duty on imports of tinplate into Pakistan originating in China, the European Union, South Africa and the US.

The National Tariff Commission initiated an antidumping investigation in August 2018, upon the application by Siddiqsons Tinplate Limited claiming that tinplate is being exported to Pakistan at dumped prices from China, the EU, South Africa and the US and that these imports have caused and are causing material injury to the domestic industry producing the same product. The investigation covered the period between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018 for antidumping and the period between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2018 for injury.

As a result, the commission has determined provisional duties of 6.87 percent for China, 10.88 percent for the EU, 14.75 percent for South Africa and 12.27 percent for the US.

The commission is required to make a final determination within 180 days of publication of the notice of preliminary determination.

The products subject to provisional antidumping duty currently fall under Customs Tariff Statistics Position Numbers 7210.1210 and 7210.1290.
