On October 3, 2023, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Vietnam issued Decision No. 2537/QD-BCT regarding the end-of-term review investigation applying anti-dumping measures to aluminum products originating from China (case code: ER01.AD05).
According to Vietnam’s regulations concerning the end-of-term review process, the Vietnam Trade Remedies Administration (the investigating agency) officially sent questionnaires to foreign producers/exporters known to the investigating agency for their response.
The deadline for submitting responses to the questionnaire is before 5:00 PM on November 24, 2023 (Hanoi time). The questionnaire responses will be considered received after 7 working days from the date of dispatch by the investigating agency, as determined by the postal stamp.
To safeguard their rights and interests, related foreign producers/exporters are required to fully participate and cooperate throughout the investigation process.
The end-of-term review of the anti-dumping and countervailing measures includes the following contents:
a) The potential of imported goods being dumped and subsidized if the anti-dumping and countervailing measures are terminated;
b) The potential significant damage or threat of significant damage to the domestic industry if the anti-dumping and countervailing measures are terminated;
c) The causal relationship between the dumping, subsidies, and the damage suffered by the domestic industry.
Timely and complete responses to the questionnaire will serve as crucial basis for determining the post-review applicable duties on businesses. In cases where the investigating agency does not receive timely and accurate responses from foreign producers/exporters or in situations where the provided information is not in line with the requirements, the investigating agency will utilize available information to draw conclusions as stipulated in Article 75 of the Foreign Trade Management Law.
Detailed instructions on how to respond to each section of the questionnaire, the quantity to be submitted, the submission format, and the deadline for submission are provided in the questionnaire for businesses.
