Customs Act 1901 – Part XVB




Finding in relation to a review of

anti-dumping measures


Public notice under s. 269ZDB(1)


The Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (Customs and Border Protection) has completed its review of anti-dumping measures applying to 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) exported to Australia from the People’s Republic of China (China) (“the goods”), which was commenced on 10 August 2012.  Recommendations resulting from that review, reasons for the recommendations, and material findings of fact and law in relation to the review are contained in International Trade Remedies Branch Report No. 189B (REP 189B).


I, JASON CLARE, the Minister for Home Affairs, have considered REP 189B and have decided to accept the recommendations and reasons for the recommendations, including all the material findings of facts and law set out in REP 189B.  Under s. 269ZDB(1) of the Customs Act 1901 (the Act), I declare, for the purposes of the Act and the Customs Tariff (Anti-Dumping) Act 1975 to the extent that anti-dumping measures concerning the goods involved the publication of a dumping duty notice that, with effect from the date of publication of this notice, the dumping duty notice is to be taken to have effect, in relation to exporters generally as if different variable factors had been fixed, relevant to the determination of duty.


This notice applies to all goods entered for home consumption on or after the date of publication of this notice.


To preserve confidentiality, the revised variable factors (as ascertained in the confidential table to this notice) will not be published.  Bona fide importers of the goods can obtain details of the new rates from the Regional Dumping Officer in their respective capital city. 


REP 189B can be obtained from Customs and Border Protection’s internet site at www.customs.gov.au or on request from International Trade Remedies Branch on telephone (02) 6275 6547.


Enquiries regarding the outcome of the review may be directed to the Case Manager on telephone number (02) 6275 6173, facsimile (02) 6275 6990 or email itrops3@customs.gov.au.
