On 19 June the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (Itac) announced the initiation of a sunset review of anti-dumping duties on clear float glass and drawn glass of a thickness of 3mm, 4mm, 5mm and 6mm, classifiable in tariff subheadings 7004.90.90, 7005.29.17, 7005.29.23, 7005.29.25 and 7005.29.35, originating in or imported from India and the People’s Republic of China on which comment is due by 19 July.
The application was lodged by PFG Building Glass (Pty) Ltd, the only producer of the subject product in the Southern African Customs Union (SACU). The applicant alleges that the expiry of the duties would likely lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping and the recurrence of material injury. The applicant submitted sufficient evidence and established a prima facie case to enable Itac to arrive at a reasonable conclusion that a sunset review investigation be initiated.
