The Ministry of Industry and Commerce announced yesterday the initiation of an anti-dumping investigation against products exported from China.
The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Technical Secretariat Office for Combating Harmful Practices in International Trade is investigating the allegedly unfair trade practices.
The focus of the inquiry is on imports of aluminium sheets, coils, and strips, specifically coated or pre-coloured flat, or granular rectangular (including square) sheets from China.
The investigation stems from a complaint lodged by the regional industry to the Technical Secretariat Office for Combating Harmful Practices in International Trade.
This inquiry falls within the customs item range (76061210 - 76061220 - 76061230) of the GCC Unified Customs Tariff (GCC Tariff ), as per the provisions of Law (48) of 2011, which approves Antidumping, Countervailing Measures, and Safeguard Measures Rules of Implementation.
The ministry emphasised that the primary objective of this measure is to bolster national industries and shield them from detrimental practices in international trade.
Importers and manufacturers interested in participating in the investigation are required to complete the necessary forms and submit them to tsad@gccsg. org or through the provided telephone numbers +966112551399 and +966112551388 by no later than November 30.
The designated applicants will then receive the forms, which must be filled within 40 days of receipt.
