Customs Act 1901 – Part XVB



Finding in relation to a continuation inquiry

Public notice under subsections 269ZHG(1) and (4)

The Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (Customs and Border Protection) has completed its inquiry, which commenced on 24 February 2012, into whether the expiration of the anti‑dumping measures applying to polyvinyl chloride homopolymer resin (PVC) exported to Australia from Japan, would lead, or would be likely to lead, to a continuation of, or a recurrence of, the dumping and the material injury that the measures are intended to prevent.  Recommendations resulting from that inquiry, reasons for the recommendations and material findings of fact and law in relation to the inquiry are contained in International Trade Remedies Report No.184 (REP 184).

I, JASON CLARE, the Minister for Home Affairs, have considered REP 184 and have decided to accept the recommendation and reasons for the recommendation, including all the material findings and facts of law therein that the anti-dumping measures applying to PVC exported to Australia from Japan should continue from 21 October 2012.

I have decided to take steps to secure the continuation of anti-dumping measures currently applying to PVC exported to Australia from Japan.  These anti-dumping measures were due to expire on 21 October 2012.

I determine that the dumping duty notice continues in force after 21 October 2012 for a further five years unless earlier revoked.  

Copies of REP 184 are available on request from International Trade Remedies Branch, Canberra, on telephone number (02) 6245 5434 or fax number (02) 6275 6990 or itrops1@customs.gov.au.  Reports are also available on the Customs and Border Protection internet site at www.customs.gov.au.

Enquiries regarding the outcome of the inquiry may be directed to the case manager on telephone number (02) 6245 5434, fax number (02) 6275 6990 or itrops1@customs.gov.au

Dated this 12th day of October 2012
