Pursuant to section 14(8) of the Dumping and Countervailing Duties Act 1988, and acting under delegated authority from the Chief Executive of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, I have initiated a review of the imposition of anti-dumping duty in respect of the goods described in the Schedule to this notice ("the goods").
This initiation follows the receipt of an application made by the New Zealand industry providing positive evidence justifying the need for a review.
Final anti-dumping duty was imposed on the goods following a determination made on 27 March 2004.
The current duty is the result of a reassessment, notice
of which was published in the New Zealand Gazette,
26 November 2009, No. 171, page 4129.
