Regarding the first anti dumping review result, Vietnam continues to keep the same duty for manufacturers and exporters from China and South Korea. However, on the Chinese side, the manufacturer Bazhou Wanshida Technology Co., Ltd has requested an independent review with the Vietnamese investigation agency to get the exclusion from the duty for all manufacturers, exporters and receive its own duty with 6.4%. 

The result of the first anti dumping review takes effect from October 25, 2020, until the end of the duty period. Regarding procedures, dossiers of inspection and imposition of anti dumping measures, the customs authority will inspect certificates of origin (C/O), self-certification of origin, certificates of quality from the manufacturer and other relevant papers to have a basis for determining that the imported goods are subject to anti dumping measures.
