Sunset review investigation on clear float glass and drawn glass initiated

The International Trade Administration Commission (ITAC) has initiated a sunset review investigation on clear float glass and drawn glass. The subject products are imported from India and China.

Anti-dumping duties are imposed for five years and a sunset review investigation is initiated to determine if the anti-dumping duties are still necessary.

Currently, anti-dumping duties on the subject products range from 562c/m2 – 1 387c/m2.

The scope of the investigation is described as; drawn glass and blown glass, in sheets, whether or not having an absorbent or reflecting layer, but not otherwise worked, of a thickness exceeding 2,5 mm but not exceeding 6 mm (excluding optical glass). These are classified under tariff subheadings 7004.90.90, 7005.29.17, 7005.29.23, 7005.29.25, and 7005.29.35.

ITAC initiated the investigation following an application by PFG Building Glass. This is the only domestic producer of the subject products in the Southern African Customs Union (SACU). PFG alleges that the expiry of the anti-dumping duties will likely lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping and the recurrence of material injury.

Exporters from India and China can make submissions to ITAC within 30 days. Local importers can also make submissions.
