Provisional anti-dumping duty imposed on laminated glass imported from China

A provisional anti-dumping duty of 232.78% has been imposed on laminated safety glass, imported from China. The glass is classifiable under tariff subheading 7007.29. This is quite a significant duty and will likely decrease the volumes imported from China.

Numerous anti-dumping investigations have been initiated by the International Trade Administration Commission (ITAC) in the last few months. First, the clear float glass anti-dumping investigation against exporters from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates was initiated in 2018. Second, ITAC initiated an anti-circumvention investigation on 23 August 2019. Third, an anti-dumping investigation on clear float glass with a thickness of 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm was initiated on 19 March 2021. It targeted imports originating from Malaysia. All investigations resulted in anti-dumping duties being imposed.
