YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2014-04-07 16:15:00 – China

China has imposed anti-dumping duties on cellulose pulp, made from plant fiber which is used as raw material in the production of viscose and acetate fiber. Anti-dumping duties is imposed on cellulose pulp imported from the United States, Canada and Brazil. It has started levying anti-dumping duty on cellulose pulp import from Sunday and the duties will last for five years, the announcement came from the Chinese Ministry of Commerce (MOC).

The decision to impose anti-dumping duties on imported cellulose pulp came in only after investigating into the matter and studies the impact of imports on its domestic market. The anti-dumping survey was launched in February last year.

Anti-dumping duty rates for U.S. imports levied ranges from 16.9 percent to 33.5 percent, those for Canadian imports from zero to 23.7 percent, and Brazilian companies are subject to rates from 6.8 percent to 11.5 percent.

However, Bahia Speciality Cellulose is the only producer in Latin America, based in the State of Bahia, Brazil. A company of Sateri International Group, headquartered in Shangai, China, focused in viscose production for the textile industry has been exempted from the anti-dumping duties. This was announced by the Ministry.

The reason for imposing anti-dumping duties on cellulose pulp is that companies from the United States, Canada and Brazil have being dumping cellulose pulp into the Chinese market which is causing considerable damage to the Chinese domestic industry due to such imports.
