NEW DELHI (ICIS news)--India has extended the anti-dumping duty (ADD) on melamine imports from China to 1 October 2009 at the recommendation of the country’s anti-dumping authority, an Indian finance ministry official said on Friday.

The authority is expected to submit its final findings on a sunset review of the ADD, which was initiated in November 2008, following a petition from Gujarat State Fertilizers & Chemicals (GSFC).

GSFC is India’s sole producer of melamine.

India had imposed a definitive ADD in November 2004 for five years, with retroactive effect from April 2004, which was when the provisional ADD was imposed.

India currently levies an ADD that is equivalent to the difference between the reference price of $1,284.38/tonne and the import price of consignment from Tianjin Kaiwei Chemical Co Ltd (TKCCL).  

All other consignments of Chinese origin are subject to an ADD calculated as the difference between the reference price of $1,456.78/tonne and the value of imports.
