(i) The financial and economic parameters of Domestic Industry (both volume and price) are stable and not evidencing deterioration requiring continuous of Anti-Dumping Duty.

(ii) The ‘MOU’ signed by the Domestic Industry with the user association/user industry have led to mitigation of likely injury due to unfair trade.

(iii) The prices agreed under MOU and actually realized by Domestic Industry during Period of Injury and post Period of Injury do not establish price underselling.

(iv) The price trends of cooperating exporters and the import trend do not indicate a likelihood of recurrence of injury to Domestic Industry if Anti-Dumping Duty is withdrawn.

(v) Non realization of full prices in accordance with the provisions of the MoU by the petitioner is the primary reason for non-mitigation of injury that has been noted on account of product underselling for UV-CTP plates due to leakages emanating from mis-declaration of product description during custom clearance;

and has concluded that continuance of Anti-Dumping duty is not warranted on any of the three categories of product and has recommended discontinuance of existing Anti-Dumping Duty on imports of the ‘Digital Offset Printing Plates’ originating in or exported from China PR in accordance with clause (b) of Rule 14 of the Customs Tariff (Identification, Assessment and Collection of Anti-dumping Duty on Dumped Articles and for Determination of Injury) Rules, 1995.
