Graphite electrode anti dumping duty meaning?
Anti-dumping duties are an additional import tariff imposed on importers by countries that import graphite electrodes to prevent imported goods from causing serious harm to domestic enterprises and the market.
Dumping refers to exporters selling goods in other countries at prices lower than their domestic market prices. The government of the importing country imposes anti-dumping duties on the products in order to protect domestic enterprises.
How much is graphite electrodes anti-dumping duty?
Anti-dumping duties are generally levied on the basis of dumping margin to offset the difference between the price of dumped goods and the normal price. If an exporter accused of dumping goods makes a “price undertaking” and is willing to increase the price of the goods or stop dumping, the government of the importing country may suspend or terminate the anti-dumping investigation if it believes that the damage caused by the dumping can be eliminated. Adopt temporary anti-dumping measures or not levy anti-dumping duties.
For example, in the past, some countries imposed anti-dumping duties on China's graphite electrodes:
The anti-dumping rate of U.S. graphite electrodes is 159.64%
The anti-dumping duty on graphite electrodes in Mexico is 38%~250%
