Malaysia enforced tinplate anti-dumping duties

Based on the investigation on producers/exporters in China and Republic of Korea, and producers and importers in Malaysia, the government of Malaysian finally announced that the collection of anti-dumping duties on imports of tinplate for five years from 16 November 2013 as follows will be enforced.

The anti-dumping investigation was based on a petition filed by Perusahaan Sadur Timah Malaysia (PERSTIMA) Berhad on behalf of the domestic industry producing electrolytic tinplate in February this year. The petitioner alleged that imports of tinplate originating in or exported from the People's Republic of China and the Republic of Korea are being imported into Malaysia at a price much lower than the price in the domestic market of the alleged countries.
