1.As of August 14, 2014, China Customs shall levy, besides existing import duties, antidumping duties and import value-added tax (VAT) on the Single-mode Optical Fiber (HS Code 90011000) from India by differentiating between the suppliers, as per the levy rates listed in the Annex 2 hereto and the calculation formula below:
Antidumping Duty Amount = customs duty-paid value × antidumping duty rate;

3.The importers shall submit the Certificates of Origin to the Customs. As regards the origin in India, the importers shall also provide original producers' invoices.

Where the Certificates of Origin are not available and the origin cannot be determined in other ways, the customs shall levy the antidumping duties at the highest rate listed in the Annex 2 hereto;

Where the origin is confirmed India, but original producers' invoices are not available and the original producers cannot be determined by other documents, the customs shall levy the antidumping duties at the highest rate in the Annex 2 hereto.

4.As regards bonded imports through processing trade, the antidumping duties shall be subjected to China Customs Administrative Measures on Processing-Trade Leftover Materials, Defective Goods, By-Products and Damaged Bonded Goods and to GACC Announcement No. 9 of 2001.

5.Any relevant deposits that the importers delivered to China Customs shall be converted into the antidumping duties or import VAT as per the antidumping duty rates or VAT rate herein. As regards any excess of the deposits over the antidumping duties and import VAT, the importers may apply for return within 6 months from August 14, 2014; any shortage thereof shall not be levied any more.
