It’s done. The Commerce Department released preliminary results of the preliminary phase of the anti-dumping investigation into electric ovens originating from Türkiye initiated in August 2023. The conclusions of the investigation determine the existence of dumping and injury to the domestic industry. Concretely, the investigation reveals that the volume of imports of electric ovens originating in Turkey experienced a notable increase, during the period examined, both in absolute terms and in relation to national production and consumption. Likewise, imports had a significant effect on the prices of locally produced electric ovens, materialized by the existence of an undercutting maintained throughout the period examined.

Data from the national production sector highlight damage which resulted in the deterioration of its economic and financial indicators during the period examined. “The investigation has established, on a preliminary basis, that the national industry has suffered significant damage within the meaning of Article 13 of Law No. 15-09 and that it is particularly vulnerable to dumped imports originating of Turkey,” underline the ministry services. Note that the determination of the existence of the causal link was established on the basis of the analysis of the coincidence between the evolution of dumped imports of electric ovens originating in Turkey and the evolution of the factors relating to the injury as well as the analysis of factors other than dumped imports and their effects on the domestic industry.

Based on the analyzes carried out, the ministry concludes that the increase in dumped imports had a damaging effect on the economic situation of the national production sector, thus constituting a major cause of damage suffered. Likewise, the analysis of the other factors made it possible to establish that they did not have negative and direct effects on the local industry of production so as to constitute a cause of this damage. Thus, on the basis of the analysis having clearly distinguished and separated the effects of all known factors on the situation of the domestic industry from the injurious effects of the dumped imports, the Department of Commerce determines, on a preliminary basis , that the causal link between the dumped imports from Turkey and the injury suffered by the domestic industry is established in the investigation.

At the end of this preliminary determination, and after advice from the Import Surveillance Commission, meeting on April 22, the ministry is considering the application of a provisional anti-dumping duty of 34.05% for the exporting producer of the Itimat brand and of 62.07% for other Turkish exporting producers, based on the undercutting margin. The application of a rate lower than the dumping margin (71.43%) is motivated by the high level of the latter and the desire to limit the impact of this measure on the consumer.
