Dumping Investigation Regarding BOPP Films Closed Without Any Measures


Ministry of Economy initiated an investigation on October 15, 2014 by the Communiqué No 2014/32 on Prevention of Unfair Competition in Imports, for evaluating the effect of "BOPP Film" imports originating from China, Egypt, India and Saudi Arabia on domestic industry. As a result of the investigation to which 11 exporters were party -one leading exporter being represented by ACTECON-, it is decided that domestic manufacturers suffered no injury from dumped imports. Under the Communiqué No 2016/8 on Prevention of Unfair Competition in Imports which is published in the Turkish Official Gazette dated on April 15, 2016, it is deemed appropriate to close the investigation without any measures in relation to the imports in question. 

This decision is of significant importance since it is one of the unique decisions regarding lack of causal link between domestic manufacturers and dumped imports.
