KYIV. Feb 22 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Ukraine has extended for another five years an anti-dumping duty of 31.58% on imports of medium density fiberboard
(MDF) produced in the Russian Federation.
According to a report by the Interdepartmental Commission on International Trade in the Holos Ukrainy newspaper, the decision was made on February 12 after the revision of anti-dumping measures and comes into force on the date of publication.
The report notes that not a single Russian producer or exporter of MDF registered within the review procedure.
On the basis of information available at the ministry, it was found out that in 2012-2014 MDF exports to certain third countries have signs of dumping.
The commission also notes that Russian MDF producers have unused production capacity, which is several times larger than the volume of consumption of this product in the domestic market of Ukraine.
