NEW DELHI—The Indian government has decided not to impose antidumping duties on acrylonitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) imports from China, the European Union, Japan and Russia.
The July 20 decision was made following an investigation by the country's Directorate General of Trade Remedies, which found NBR imports from those regions had caused material injury to domestic industry.
In its final findings, published May 12, DGTR recommended a duty of $2,086.78/metric ton for all producers.
The agency launched the investigations in May 2020 upon a petition by the country's only NBR producer, Apcotex Industries Ltd.
The investigation period covered the period July 2019 to March 2020.
Among the companies mentioned by the petition are Arlanxeo Emulsion Rubber France SAS, Zeon Corp. and Russia's JSC Kransnoyarsk Synthetic Rubber Plant.
