Anti-dumping duty on Arylides – International Trade Law Update #54
On August 19, 2021, DGTR issued Final Findings recommending imposition of anti-dumping duty on import of Arylides from China PR. Arylides are organic compounds and are used as intermediates to essentially make different kinds of yellow pigments. They also find small application in other industries like agrochemicals, orange and red pigments.
Considering the recent trend wherein Ministry of Finance has rejected positive recommendations by DGTR, it will be interesting to watch whether Ministry of Finance in three months’ time accept / reject the recommendation of DGTR.
