Hanoi (VNA) – The Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) has just issued Decision No. 2847/QD-BTC on applying self-defence measures against imported colour-coated iron sheets.

Products subject to investigation include metal-plated and colour-coated iron sheets, coils and roofing sheets with the trade codes: 7210.7010, 7210.7090, 7212.4010, 7212.4020, 7212.4090, 7225.9990, 7226.9919, and 7226.9999.

Based on Article 20 of the Ordinance on safeguards on importing foreign goods into Vietnam, the MoIT can issue a decision on applying temporary self-defence measures before the end of investigation in case it notes that delays in carrying out self-defence measures may cause drastic losses to the domestic production industry.

Therefore, the ministry recommends domestic importers take into consideration the possibility of applying temporary self-defence measures against their targeted products.

Previsouly, the ministry received a petition from the Nghiem and Chinh Partnership Law Firm, who represents Dai Thien Loc JSC, Nam Kim Steel JSC, and Ton Dong A JCS for a self-defence measure against colour-coated iron sheet.

The petition was confirmed valid and in line with the current regulations on June 6.-VNA
