Enterprise Represented by East & Concord Partners Won New Shipper Status in Australia’s “Anti-Dumping and Countervailing” Investigation of Chinese Aluminum Products


On July 10, 2017, the Anti-Dumping Commission of the Australian Government made the final judgment on the new shipper review in its anti-dumping and countervailing investigation into aluminum products that were imported fromChina. The Chinese enterprise presented by Vivian Wang, partner of East & Concord Partners, successfully won the new shipper status and a combined anti-dumping and countervailing duty rate of 0.2%.

Such enterprise did not export aluminum products toAustraliaduring the original inspection period, so it was not involved in the original inspection. Before applying for new shipper review, it was applied the highest duty rate for Chinese enterprises faced with a combined anti-dumping and countervailing duty rate of 48.5%. In March 2017, Vivian Wang represented such enterprise to submit an application for new shipper review to the Anti-Dumping Commission of the Australian Government. After four months of investigation, the Anti-Dumping Commission of the Australian Government reset such enterprise’s anti-dumping and countervailing duty rate as 0.2% combined.

It is noteworthy that East & Concord Anti-dumping and Countervailing team had outstanding results in the past investigation by the Australian government into the dumping and subsidization of the products imported from China. In the retrial of investigation by Australia of the dumping of PV modules and panels over which a decision was made on October 17, 2016, and in the original inspection by Australia of the dumping of PV modules and panels that were imported from China over which a decision was made on October 6, 2015, Vivian Wang filed no-damage defense representing the entire Chinese PV industry twice, and the two trials both ended in finding of no material injury. The case was also the first win (ending in tax-free decision) in EU, US, Canada and Australia, in the dumping investigation (subsidization) of PV products imported from China.
