Termination of Anti-dumping Duties on Certain Bound Stationery From Malaysia

The following notice is hereby given:
N o t i c e
Title and commencement-(1) This notice may be cited as the Termination of Anti-Dumping Duties on Certain Bound Stationery from Malaysia.
(2) Pursuant to section 14(7) of the Dumping and Countervailing Duties Act 1988 ("the Act"), I hereby give notice that I have terminated the anti-dumping duties imposed on the subject goods described in the Schedule to this notice, with effect from 11 September 2012, because a review under section 14(8) of the Act has determined that there is not likely to be a continuation of dumping causing material injury in the foreseeable future if these duties are removed.
(3) Pursuant to section 14(10) of the Act, I have directed Customs to refund any duties paid since 11 September 2012. Any importer that has imported the subject goods and
paid anti-dumping duty since this date may apply to the New Zealand Customs Service for a refund.
