[Fellow]Silicon Metal exported from the People’s Republic of China Extension of time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts Customs Act 1901 – Part XVB

On 6 February 2014, the Anti-Dumping Commission (the Commission) published a notice

announcing the initiation of an investigation into the alleged dumping and subsidisation of

silicon metal exported from the People’s Republic of China (China).

 

A full description of the goods is available in Anti-Dumping Notice (ADN) No. 2014/08. This

ADN is available on the Commission’s website at www.adcommission.gov.au.

 

The initiation notice advised that the statement of essential facts (SEF) for the

investigation would be placed on the public record by 27 May 2014. The SEF will set out

the facts on which I propose to base my recommendations to the Parliamentary Secretary

to the Minister for Industry (the Parliamentary Secretary). On 28 May 2014,

ADN No. 2014/45 notified an extension of time granted to issue the SEF to

25 August 2014.

 

Due to the complexity of the issues surrounding the investigation, I requested a further

extension of the deadline for the publication of the SEF. The Parliamentary Secretary

has, under section 269ZHI of the Customs Act 1901, further extended the deadline for the

publication of the SEF. The SEF will now be placed on the public record no later than

24 October 2014. Interested parties are invited to make submissions to the Commission

in response to the SEF within 20 days of the SEF being placed on the public record.

A recommendation to the Parliamentary Secretary will now be made in a report due on or

before 8 December 2014.

 

Documents included in the public record are available at www.adcommission.gov.au.

Alternatively, the public record may be examined at the Commission’s office by contacting

the case manager on the details provided below.

 

Inquiries about this notice may be directed to the case manager on telephone number

02 6275 5649, or email operations2@adcommission.gov.au.
