DTIC to impose antidumping duties on windscreens from China

The Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (DTIC) will impose antidumping duties on windscreens imported from China, to be used in the Southern African Customs Union (Sacu) area as replacement glass in the aftermarket.

The International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (Itac) initiated an investigation into the dumping of these windscreens starting mid-2022.

According to the World Trade Organisation, dumping is, in general, a situation of international price discrimination, where the price of a product sold in the importing country (South Africa, in this case) is less than the price of that product in the market of the exporting country (China).

Itac considered there to be prima facie evidence that the product was being imported at dumped prices, causing material injury to the Sacu manufacturing industry.

Following its investigation, Itac made a recommendation to Trade, Industry and Competition Minister Ebrahim Patel to impose antidumping duties on the windscreens.

The Minister approved the commission’s recommendation. 

The final determination was published in the Government Gazette on January 19.
