Review of safeguard Duty on imports of PX-13 or PPD (Rubber Chemicals) - Final Findings

The Central Government had levied safeguard duty of 30% minus ADD on the imports of PX-13 into India for the period of August 30, 2011 to August 29, 2012 and safeguard duty of 25% minus ADD for the period of August 30, 2012 to August 29, 2013 on the basis of the investigation initiated by the Directorate General of Safeguards ("DG"). The DG had initiated a review investigation on the basis of the instant application filed by the domestic industry for the continual/extension of safeguard duty for a further period of 2 years.

The Interested Parties had placed reliance on India's WTO complaint against Turkey in DS 428 titled "Turkey - Safeguards Measures on Imports of Cotton Yarn (Other Than Sewing Thread)" in which case India had challenged Turkey's extension of safeguard measure on January 28, 2012 after the expiry of the same measure on July 14, 2011 as the same was inconsistent with the provisions of the Article 7.5 of the AoS which provides that Turkey was required to wait for the mandatory cool down period of minimum 2 years.

The DG took into consideration the facts in the present case and came to the conclusion that the domestic industry has failed to adduce positive adjustment steps undertaken by them since the imposition of the previous safeguard duty on PX-13 with effect from 30th August, 2011 and were merely seeking extension of safeguard duty on the basis of deviated futuristic/proposed adjustment plans without any concrete measure in place. Further the DG has held that any further action in this regard will also be against the stand taken by Government of India at the WTO, in its complaint against Turkey in DS 428 titled "Turkey - Safeguards Measures on Imports of Cotton Yarn (Other Than Sewing Thread)". Therefore in consideration of the findings above, the review proceedings of the safeguard investigation related to continued imposition of safeguard duty on PX-13/6PPD was therefore terminated.
