Chile to investigate imports of steel grinding balls from China

Posted on by admin

The Chilean Price Distortion Commission (CNDP) will investigate imports of steel grinding balls from China, following a request from local producer Moly-Cop S.A, according to a document decision on April 27.

CNDP hasn’t set a specific timeline to decide whether it will impose anti-dumping (AD) duties over imports of the product, but said the analysis period will cover the full-year of 2019, from January 1 to December 31.

The product investigated falls under Chilean HS code 7326.1110.

Moly-Cop S.A argued Chinese imports of steel grinding balls increased 8.9 percent in 2019, year-on-year. However, Moly-Cop S.A said its domestic sales of grinding balls in 2019 fell 16.6 percent, year-on-year.

The Chilean producer argued the Chilean steel grinding ball market has been hit by Chinese imports of the product.
