HÀ NỘI — The Anti-Dumping Commission of Australia (ADC) has issued an announcement to extend the deadline of publishing the Statement of Essential Facts (SEF) and the final report in the dumping investigation of wind towers imported from Việt Nam.

To further examine the role of various parties involved in the production and export of the goods to Australia as well as to verify the information that has been provided by interested parties, ADC has decided to extend the deadline to publish the SEF to November 5, 2017.

Interested parties are invited to make submissions in response to the SEF within 20 days of the SEF being placed on public record.

A final report on the ADC’s recommendations will be submitted to the parliamentary secretary no later than December 20, 2017. The secretary will make a decision within 30 days of receiving the report.

Prior to this, ADC initiated an investigation into the alleged dumping of certain wind towers exported to Australia from Việt Nam on June 8, 2017.

The investigation follows an application lodged by Australian wind tower manufacturers Keppel Prince Engineering Pty Ltd and Ottoway Fabrication Pty Ltd.

The investigation examines transactions that took place from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2016, with ADC estimating a dumping margin of 15.7 per cent on Việt Nam’s wind towers.

ADC plans to publish the SEF by September 26, 2017 and the final report by November 10, 2017.

On August 7, 2017, ADC temporarily decided not to apply anti-dumping duties on wind towers imported from Việt Nam. — VNS
