PROCEEDINGS On 7 November 2000, the Ministry of Economic Development accepted a properly documented application from Fisher & Paykel Limited (F&P), alleging that imports of washing machines from Korea were being dumped and by reason thereof causing and threatening to cause material injury to the New Zealand industry. In accordance with section 10 of the Dumping and Countervailing Duties Act 1988 (hereinafter also referred to as the Act), the Chief Executive of the Ministry of Economic Development (Chief Executive) may, on receipt of an application from the industry, initiate an investigation to determine both the existence and effect of any alleged dumping of any goods on being satisfied that sufficient evidence has been provided that: (a) (b) the goods imported or intended to be imported into New Zealand are being dumped; and by reason thereof material injury to an industry has been or is being caused or is threatened or the establishment of an industry has been or is being materially retarded.
In considering an application, the Chief Executive is required to be satisfied that there is evidence going beyond mere assertion and of a nature and extent that indicates a likelihood of dumping and resultant material injury, and requiring investigation. The evidence is to be scrutinised with due scepticism, bearing in mind the commercial context, and the Chief Executive is to be satisfied of the sufficiency of the evidence, not of dumping or material injury. Basis for the Application
F&P claims that as a result of the alleged dumping, material injury is resulting from: increased volume of the allegedly dumped imports; price undercutting, price depression, and price suppression,
and is resulting in: decline in market share; and decline in profits;
and will result in: declines in output and sales; decline in return on investments; and possible adverse effect on employment.
F&P has stated in its application that the material injury resulting from the importation of allegedly dumped washing machines commenced in the AprilJuly 2000 period. F&P has requested the imposition of provisional anti-dumping duties to prevent material injury being caused during the investigation. Provisional anti-dumping duties may be imposed no earlier than 60 days after initiation of an investigation if the Minister has reasonable cause to believe that the imported goods are being dumped and are causing or threatening to cause material injury to an industry, and the Minister is satisfied that action is necessary to prevent material injury being caused during the period of investigation. It should be noted that the Ministry approaches investigations on the basis that injury and threat of injury are alternatives, i.e. an industry is either injured or threatened with injury, but both cannot apply at the same time. INTERESTED PARTIES New Zealand Industry
The application was lodged by F&P, the only producer of household automatic washing machines in New Zealand. F&P is a wholly owned subsidiary of the listed company Fisher & Paykel Industries Ltd. Importers and Exporters Exporters
F&P has identified the following exporters from Korea as allegedly dumping washing machines: LG Electronics (LG); and Samsung Electronics (Samsung).
Available Customs data for the year ended 31 October 2000 lists the following as suppliers of washing machines from Korea: Dae Hyun Agriculture & Fisheries Co Ltd Daewoo Corp Daewoo Electronics Corp Ltd Dong Nam Co Ltd Fisher & Paykel Pty Ltd GAE Asia Ltd LG Electronic Inc LG International Corp Samsung Aust Pty Ltd Samsung Electronics Importers
F&P states that several companies import automatic washing machines under different brand names. F&P believes the following companies are importers: Baigent & Daughters;
Washing Machines from Korea
Email New Zealand Ltd; Radiola Corporation; and LM Rankine Trading Corporation Ltd. 1.2.5 Customs data shows the following as importers of washing machines from Korea: Email Appliances (NZ) Ltd Eurolife Ltd Fisher & Paykel Ltd* Hagemeyer NZ Ltd LM Rankine Trading Co Ltd Radiola Corporation Ltd Sanford South Island Ltd South East Resources Ltd
* As noted in Section 4.4 of this Report, F&P has imported sample models from Korea.
Due to the number of suppliers and importers identified, should an investigation be initiated it is intended to specifically investigate those suppliers (and their associated importers) representing the top 99 percent of imports (by volume) of the subject goods over the year ended October 2000. In making this calculation the various Samsung, LG and Daewoo companies listed in the NZCS data have been treated as one entity. All other suppliers and importers will have the opportunity to provide submissions but these will not be directly solicited. Suppliers and importers falling into the above category are as follows: Exporters Samsung LG Daewoo Importers Radiola Corporation Ltd LM Rankine Trading Co Ltd Email Appliances (NZ) Ltd Eurolife Ltd
Any investigation will need to establish the extent to which the parties listed are importing the goods subject to this application. In addition, the investigation will need to establish whether such goods have any degree of manufacture in the country of export, or whether they are merely transshipped. IMPORTED GOODS The goods which are the subject of the application, hereinafter referred to as washing machines or subject goods, are:
Household fully automatic washing machines with a dry linen capacity not exceeding 10kg, the capacity determined by standard AS/NZS2040. 1.3.2 The allegedly dumped goods consist of both top loading and front loading models. F&P refers to capacity measures for washing machines in terms of standard AS/NZ2040, which requires machines to meet a number of wash performance and energy consumption standards at the claimed capacity. The New Zealand Customs Service has advised that the washing machines enter under the following tariff classifications: 84.50 Household of laundry-type washing machines which both wash and dry: 8450.11 8450.11.01 -Machines, each of a dry linen capacity not exceeding 10kg: Fully-automatic machines:
--Household. Of a dry linen capacity not exceeding 6kg: 02H. Top loading machines 05B. Front loading machines. Other: 07J. Top loading machines 11G. Front loading machines
Applicable duty rates are: Normal Australia Canada LDC LLDC Pac 7 Free 3 5.5 Free Free
In this report, unless otherwise stated, years are March years and dollars values are NZ$. Year to date (YTD) figures refer to the period April to July 2000. In tables, column totals may differ from individual figures because of rounding. The period for considering claims of dumping is from 1 November 1999 to 31 October 2000. This was the period for which Customs data as close as practicable to the date of initiation was available. The applicant claims that injury has occurred in the April to July 2000 period and that injury is also threatened. The period over which injury will be considered is 1 April 1997 to 30 September 2000, but may include more recent information if available. The application also refers to threat of injury, and threat will be evaluated if actual material injury is not established. In evaluating threat of material injury the investigating team would consider information relating to the likely effect of the allegedly dumped imports in addition to historical financial information.
a strong indication that the retailer views a potential buyer of a washing machine making a choice between a top loading machine and a front loading machine. F&P refers to the growth in imports of front loading washing machines (see discussion under Other Causes of Injury), as indicative of the substitutability of the machines. 2.1.20 F&P notes that both types of machines are sometimes advertised together. Other Relevant Matters 2.1.21 F&P notes that claimed capacities in Korea are not the same as those used on the New Zealand market due to the use of different standards in each market. F&P states that F&P model sizes 5.5kg, 6.5kg and 7.5kg, easily rate as 10kg under the Korean standard. Both front loading and top loading washing machines are classified under the same tariff item, but under different statistical keys. F&P considers that:
The imposition of a remedy against a top loading machine and not a front loading machine would result in the remedy failing to address the material injury caused by dumping because the prices of front loading machines from Korea would continue to depress the prices of top loading machines manufactured by F&P. This would only occur if top loading machines were not seen as like goods to front loading machines.
Conclusions Relating to Like Goods 2.1.24 2.1.25 The washing machines produced by F&P are not identical to the washing machines imported from Korea. F&P produces only top loading washing machines which, after weighing up similarities and differences in terms of physical characteristics, function and usage, pricing structures, marketing and distribution and tariff classification, have characteristics closely resembling top loading washing machines imported from Korea. F&Ps top loading machines possess similarities with imported Korean front loading machines in terms of production methods, many components, function and usage, pricing structures, marketing and distribution, and tariff classification. F&Ps top loading machines differ from imported Korean front loading machines in terms of appearance, some internal components and some aspects of consumer operation and perception. After weighing up these similarities and differences, the Ministry considers that F&Ps top loading machines have characteristics closely resembling front loading washing machines imported from Korea. On the basis of the information available, for initiation purposes, the Ministry considers that the washing machines produced by F&P, while not identical to the subject goods, have characteristics closely resembling the subject goods and are therefore like goods to the subject goods.
NEW ZEALAND INDUSTRY An investigation may not be initiated unless the Chief Executive is satisfied that the requirements of section 10(3) of the Act are met. These requirements are that the collective output of those New Zealand producers who have, in writing, expressed support for the application constitutes: (a) Twenty-five percent or more of the total New Zealand production of like goods produced for domestic consumption (assessed during the most recent representative period, being not less than six months); and More than 50 percent of the total production of like goods produced for domestic consumption (as so assessed) by those New Zealand producers who have, in writing, expressed support for or opposition to the application.
The application was submitted by Fisher & Paykel Limited, the sole New Zealand producer of household automatic washing machines. The Ministry is aware that there is only one manufacturer of household automatic washing machines in New Zealand and research supports this fact. The applicant has advised that production closely follows sales. The applicant has provided sales volume and value information, representing its production, for the years ended March 1998 to 2000, and has provided forecast figures for the year ending March 2001. IMPORTS OF WASHING MACHINES The applicant provided INFOS data from Statistics New Zealand for the tariff items and statistical keys in section 1.3 above. The following table shows import volumes of washing machines. Table 2.1: Imports of Washing Machines (Units) Months to July 2000 Korea 5,729 5,813 Other Imports 42,174 39,749 48,054 15,134 Total Imports 42,180 40,437 53,783 20,947
Section 11(1) of the Act provides that where the Minister is satisfied in respect of some or all of the goods under investigation, that there is insufficient evidence of dumping or injury to justify proceeding with the investigation then the investigation shall be terminated. Section 11(2) of the Act provides that evidence of dumping shall be regarded as insufficient if the volume of imports of dumped goods, expressed as a percentage of total imports of like goods into New Zealand, is negligible, having regard to New Zealands obligations as a party to the Anti-Dumping Agreement. The Agreement deals with the negligibility of dumped imports under Article 5:8 as follows:
5.8 An application under paragraph 1 shall be rejected and an investigation shall be terminated promptly as soon as the authorities concerned are satisfied that there is not sufficient evidence of either dumping or of injury to justify proceeding with the case. There shall be immediate termination in
cases where the authorities determine that the margin of dumping is de minimis, or that the volume of dumped imports, actual or potential, or the injury, is negligible. The margin of dumping shall be considered to be de minimis if this margin is less than 2 per cent, expressed as a percentage of the export price. The volume of dumped imports shall normally be regarded as negligible if the volume of dumped imports from a particular country is found to account for less than 3per cent of imports of the like product in the importing Member, unless countries which individually account for less than 3 per cent of the imports of the like product in the importing Member collectively account for more than 7 per cent of imports of the like product in the importing Member.
The import volume figures in Table 2.1 above show that imports from Korea represented 11 percent of all imports in the year ended March 2000 and 28 percent of all imports in the 4 months to July 2000. On the basis of this information, imports of the subject goods from Korea are not negligible. NEW ZEALAND MARKET The following table shows the New Zealand market for washing machines and was prepared from Statistics New Zealand INFOS data provided by F&P. Figures for NZ industry sales are for only those washing machines produced in New Zealand. Table 2.2: New Zealand Market (Units) 2000 Korean Imports Other Imports Total Imports NZ Industry Sales NZ Market 6 42,174 42,39,749 40,437 5,729 48,054 53,783
Ministry has made some adjustments to these calculations to ensure they are consistent with the numbers of washing machines per container shown in calculations for port service charges. Port Service and Customs Charges 3.1.15 F&P has calculated port service and Customs charges on the basis of flat fees per container divided by the number of washing machines of each size capacity that is able to be packed into a container. Insurance 3.1.16 An amount for insurance has been allowed at ____ percent for both Samsung and LG. F&P states this is based on known costs for a shipment of whiteware (refrigerators) from Korea. Import Duty 3.1.17 An amount for import duty has been allowed at the current rate for imports of the subject goods from Korea of five and a half percent. Inland Freight to Port of Export 3.1.18 An amount of ______ percent of ex-factory value has been allowed for freight from the Korean factories to the port of export. Exchange Rates 3.1.19 In its application F&P converted the NZ dollar FOB price to Korean won at the Customs exchange rate effective on 18 September 2000 of 1NZ$ = 470.07 Korean won. Since then the won has appreciated against the NZ dollar which would have the effect of further reducing the export price in won. For the purposes of initiation the exchange rate at 18 September has been used. Export Prices 3.1.20 The calculation of constructed export prices on the basis set out above is shown in the tables below. Samsung 3.1.21 The following table shows export prices calculated from retail prices in October and November 2000.

notes that it has elected to show the full __ percent margin and ____ percent discount as a conservative estimate of the full retail margin. Freight from Factory to Consumer 3.2.11 An amount of ___ percent has been allowed for both Samsung and LG. F&P states that information obtained by it from sources inside and outside Korea suggests that washing machines are delivered from the manufacturer/manufacturers warehouse direct to the end consumer. F&P states it has estimated the freight cost on the basis of the known cost to it in Australia of ____ percent plus a ___ percent loading to cover delivery into the home and installation. F&P notes that the three percent cost it incurs in Australia is for delivery from warehouse to the retailer. Warranty Costs 3.2.12 An amount of ___ percent has been allowed for both Samsung and LG. F&P states that ___ percent is the accepted figure for warranty provision in the whiteware business. F&P notes that a deduction has been made for warranty costs on the basis that this cost is incurred on domestic sales but not on export sales. Other Costs 3.2.13 F&P notes that corporate advertising costs for maintaining the presence of an established brand in the market is ___ percent of turnover. No deduction has been made for this amount and the Ministry would not normally make an adjustment for this type of advertising cost which is incurred regardless of whether an individual sale is made. The applicant also notes that it has not made a deduction for warehouse and distribution costs as they are not costs directly related to sales and are incurred regardless of whether there is a sale. Freight from factory to consumer has been deducted, as noted above, to arrive at ex-factory prices. Calculation of Normal Values 3.2.14 The calculation of normal values for Samsung on the basis set out above is shown in the table below. Table 3.4: Normal Values Samsung

F&P states that a selling price in Korea for the two front loading LG models was not reasonably available. The two front loading models each have a 7kg capacity. For those two models, after discussion with the Ministry, F&P has used the normal value established for a Korean top loading domestic LG model, and, to obtain an estimated normal value for the higher specification model, has adjusted that value by the difference in New Zealand retail prices between lower and higher specification models. The retail selling price in New Zealand of LGs top loading 6.5kg model, $1,099, is the same as the retail price of the lower-specification 7kg front loading machine. It would seem reasonable, therefore, to use the normal value established for the LG top loading 6.5kg model for comparison with the lower specification 7kg front loading model. To assess a normal value for the higher-priced 7kg front loading model, it would also seem reasonable, given the limited information reasonably available to the applicant, to adjust the normal value of the lower-priced 7kg model by the relativity between the retail pricing of the two models in New Zealand. The calculation of normal values for LG, on the basis set out above, is shown in the table below. Table 3.6: Normal Values LG Top Loading Capacity (kg) 7.0 7.0 Korean Model No. WF-J85B WFWS133G NZ Model No. WD8050FH WD1021W Retail Price (Won) 266,276 302,620 Conclusion on Normal Values
The Ministry considers that, for purposes of initiation, the information provided by F&P is sufficient evidence of normal values for the subject goods.
COMPARISON OF EXPORT PRICE AND NORMAL VALUE F&P notes that it has calculated dumping margins on the basis of information reasonably available and states that information on other brands has not been available and estimates have not been made for all brands because sufficient evidence of dumping has been shown for initiation. F&P notes that its research indicates that models exported to New Zealand are not identical to models manufactured for the Korean market. In particular, F&P notes that claimed capacities in Korea are not the same as those used on the New Zealand market due to the use of different standards in each market. F&P states that the Korean standard (KS C9608-96) is based on the Japanese standard JISC 9606. F&P notes that this standard is based on an old wringer machine as the standard and is rather primitive. Capacity claims under this standard need to meet an electrical safety benchmark and the standard does not have a wash performance requirement. F&P states that F&P model sizes 5.5kg, 6.5kg and 7.5kg, easily rate as 10kg under the Korean standard. At the same time, F&P has attempted to take a conservative approach to the calculation of comparative normal values. For example, in calculating LG top loading normal values, F&P states The lowest domestic price has been used so that the normal value calculation is conservative. For example, a 10kg domestic model could be compared with the 6.5kg export model but this would result in a substantially higher dumping margin. F&P has compared New Zealand models of specific capacities with Korean domestic models with claimed capacities as follows: Table 3.7: Comparison of Capacities Capacity (kg) Samsung LG Models Model exported to NZ 6.5 4.5 6.5 Model sold in Korea 8.0 5.5 8.5
Based on the information provided to the Ministry, the following is the evidence of dumping:

The evidence provided shows that the alleged margins of dumping range from 9 percent to 49 percent and are not de minimis in terms of Article 5.8 of the Agreement as set out above in paragraph 2.3.2. The Ministry is satisfied on the basis of the information provided that the comparison of export prices and normal values provides sufficient evidence of dumping for the purposes of initiation in respect of the importation of washing machines from Korea. Any investigation will need to give consideration to the provisions of section 4 (export price) and section 5 (normal value) of the Act as they should apply, and in particular to the application of the appropriate adjustments required by section 4(1)(a)(i) and (ii) and section 5(3).
The basis for considering material injury is set out in section 8(1) of the Act:
8. Material injury to industry(1) In determining for the purposes of this Act whether or not any material injury to an industry has been or is being caused or is threatened or whether or not the establishment of an industry has been or is being materially retarded by means of the dumping or subsidisation of goods imported or intended to be imported into New Zealand from another country, the [Chief Executive] shall examine (a) The volume of imports of the dumped or subsidised goods; and (b) The effect of the dumped or subsidised goods on prices in New Zealand for like goods; and (c) The consequent impact of the dumped or subsidised goods on the relevant New Zealand industry.
IMPORT VOLUMES Section 8(2)(a) of the Act provides that the Chief Executive shall have regard to the extent to which there has been or is likely to be a significant increase in the volume of imports of dumped or subsidised goods either in absolute terms or in relation to production or consumption in New Zealand.
Table 4.3: Average Selling Prices of Washing Machines (NZ$ per Unit) est. 2002 est. With Price Without Increase Increase GW5.5kg GW7.5kg IW7.5kg NA NA Total 188.8.131.52 The figures show that overall average prices declined in 1999, recovered in 2000 and will increase in 2001. The increased average selling price in 2001 is due to ________________________________________. F&P refers to the significant increase in Korean imports in 2000 and states that to maintain volume market share F&P has been forced to drastically reduce its prices to dealers to maintain sales. F&P has compared prices in the first four months of this financial year with prices in the same period last financial year, as shown in the following table. Table 4.4: Average Selling Prices of Washing Machines (NZ$ per Unit) Apr-Jul 1999 Apr-Jul Change % Change 2000 GW5.5kg GW7.5kg IW7.5kg Total 184.108.40.206 The most recent financial information shows that average prices for all F&P models produced in New Zealand were lower than average prices for the same period in the previous financial year. However, F&P expects the forecast figures for the full year 2001 (as shown in Table 4.2 above) to be ______________________________________________________________ ________________________________________. The Ministry considers that the evidence provided by F&P shows that at times average prices have decreased, but also that _______________________. The evidence presented in support of price depression claimed to be due to dumped imports is unclear and not sufficient for purposes of initiation. Price Suppression Section 8(2)(c) of the Act also provides that the Chief Executive shall have regard to the extent to which the effect of the dumped or subsidised goods is or is likely significantly to prevent price increases for those goods that otherwise would have been likely to have occurred. 220.127.116.11 The Ministry generally bases its assessment of price suppression on positive evidence, in particular the extent to which cost increases have not been recovered in prices. Cost increases not able to be recovered by price increases will be reflected by an increased ratio of costs to sales revenue. Where cost savings have been made, the lack of any price increase will not normally be regarded as price suppression. While the inability to recover cost
increases in prices is the main indicator of price suppression, the Ministry will consider any other factors raised as positive evidence of price suppression. 18.104.22.168 F&P states that it has in recent times been lowering its prices to maintain competitiveness and import volumes and that it has been unable to increase prices to recover increased costs. F&P refers to increased costs of imported raw materials due to the fall in value of the New Zealand dollar. The transfer of production of F&Ps 6.5kg model to Australia in March 1999, means that comparison of financial information over the years 1998 to 2000 will be distorted, making interpretation of any trends problematic. For purposes of assessing whether there is price suppression, F&P has compared financial information (excluding 6.5kg sales) for the four months April to July 1999 with the same months in 2000. From the financial information provided by F&P, the Ministry has prepared the following table. Table 4.5: Price Suppression (NZ$ per Unit) (5.5kg & 7.5kg models only) Apr-Jul 1999 Ave Selling Price Cost of Production Gross Margin Selling & Admin. EBIT GM as % of Sales EBIT as % of Sales 22.214.171.124
In an investigation, the Ministrys assessment of the impact of dumped imports is based on an examination of trends in actual profits in order to establish whether or not there is an actual or potential decline in profits. In some circumstances it may be possible to determine that injury is being caused where profits are not declining, but that would depend on the circumstances of the case, and would need to be based on positive evidence. Such an impact would also need to be attributable to the dumping of imports. The table below shows an analysis of the earnings before interest and tax achieved for washing machines. Table 4.12: Earnings Before Interest and Tax (Units NZ$) Months to July 2000 EBIT on all NZ Sales - Per Unit - As % of Revenue EBIT (Excluding 6.5kg) - Per Unit - As % of Revenue
The table shows that, in the first four months of the 2001 financial year, EBIT has declined significantly on a per unit basis and as a percentage of sales revenue. F&P states that in this period 5,813 units were imported from Korea compared with 953 units in the same period a year prior. F&P notes that, for washing machines other than _____, EBIT increased in 2000 and this suggests that the allegedly dumped imports did not have an effect in that year. Sales volumes in 2000 were down by ______ units on the previous year but F&P notes that this decline was offset by improved prices which contributed significantly to the EBIT increase in 2000. F&P states that the major contributor to the improvement in EBIT was, however, the result of redesigning the electronics used in the automatic washing machines. The redesign lead to cost reductions of $__________, although these were partly offset by increased overheads. F&P states:
In the absence of the dumped imports the improvement in EBIT would have been higher as the price/volume effects of the dumping margin would not have impacted on F&P. The dumped imports have completely removed from F&P the opportunity to benefit from the cost reductions achieved in YEM 2000. It is reasonable to observe that these cost savings should be contributing to the profits of the business in YEM 2001.
F&P has forecast EBIT for the year ending March 2001 on the basis of two different scenarios. _________________________________________, F&P forecasts EBIT will decline significantly to _____, _____ per unit and ____ percent of sales revenue. _______________________________________ ________, F&P forecasts ______________ or _____ per unit, _____ being ___ percent of sales revenue. F&P states that loss of profits has been greater than shown in this analysis, as [F&P] has not addressed the profits that should have been achieved in the absence of dumping.
On the basis of the information available, it is concluded that, for the purposes of initiation, there is sufficient evidence that: (a) (b) Automatic washing machines from Korea are being dumped; and By reason thereof material injury to the New Zealand industry is being caused.
It is recommended on the basis of the conclusions reached and in accordance with section 10 of the Dumping and Countervailing Duties Act 1988: (a) that the Chief Executive of the Ministry of Economic Development formally initiate an investigation to establish whether imports of automatic washing machines from Korea are being dumped and are causing or threatening to cause material injury to the New Zealand industry producing like goods; that the Chief Executive sign the attached Gazette notice, and give notice to interested parties in accordance with section 9 of the Act.

Reciprocating mini agitator imitates hand wash action:
o With strong power for heavy clothes and soft touch for delicate items, the mini agitator moves up and down to remove dirt just like hand washing.
Detergent box and fabric softener dispenser:
o The detergent box evenly dispenses the washing detergent during the wash cycle to improve detergent dilution and reduce residue build-up. This feature also prevents bleaching damage to clothes from undiluted detergent when using the delay start cycle. o The convenient fabric softener dispenser adds the softener automatically.
Twin filter nets collect lint and residue:
o Two large, wide filter nets catch lint and other larger particles that can accumlate on certain fabrics.
Water cascades pound the wash:
o Powerful waterfalls injected from two ports above the wash bowl pound and push down floating garments to produce a more effective overall wash action.
