These may be imposed during an investigation to prevent material injury to an Australian industry while an investigation is underway. Dumping and countervailing securities may be imposed no earlier than 60 days after the start of an investigation, and only after the publication of a preliminary affirmative determination (PAD).
If the minister decides to publish a duty notice at the end of an investigation, securities will be converted to interim dumping and/or countervailing duty. The amount of duty converted cannot exceed the amount of the security taken.
Securities will only be converted for goods that were exported to Australia after the date that the commissioner made a PAD.
Goods on the water
In some cases, goods are exported to Australia before a duty notice is published, but enter Australia after the notice is published. These goods ‘on the water’ will be subject to the duty rate that applied on the date of export. The importer will need to provide evidence of the date the goods left the country of export.
