Dumping: Fully Threaded Screws with Hexagon Heads
The application was lodged by the South African Fastener Manu- facturers Asso- ciation (SAFMA), an industrial organisation for the major producers of the subject product in the Southern African Customs Union (Sacu) region. The SAFMA constitutes 80% of the Sacu production value.
The allegation of dumping is based on the comparison between the normal value in China and the export price from China. The normal value was constructed based on the cost of production plus general selling and administration expenses and profit in China. The export price was based on six-month import statistics from Sars.
Proposed Increase in Duty: Stainless Steel Sinks
The application was lodged by Franke Kitchen Systems, which reasoned that the stainless-steel sinks industry is currently distressed as a result of lowly priced stainless-steel sinks imported from China and other countries. An increase in the rate of customs duty from 20% ad valorem to 30% ad valorem will protect the local market and enable them to be more competitive.
