Chapter II Investigation

Article 3 Any natural person, legal person or other organization related to a domestic industry (hereinafter collectively referred to as the applicant) may, in accordance with the provisions of these Regulations, make a written application to the Ministry of Commerce for applying safeguard measures.

The Ministry of Commerce shall promptly examine the application made by the applicant and decide whether or not to initiate an investigation.

Article 4 If the Ministry of Commerce decides to initiate an investigation without having received any written application for applying safeguard measures, it shall proceed only if it has sufficient evidence of injury to a domestic industry due to the increase in quantity of an import.

(1) the rate and amount of the increase of the import in absolute and relative terms;
(2) the share of the domestic market taken by the increased import;
(3) the impact of the import on the domestic industry, including the impact on the production, the level of sales, market share, productivity, capacity utilization, profits and losses, and employment of the domestic industry; and
(4) other factors that may cause or have caused injury to the domestic industry.

The determination of a threat of serious injury shall be based on facts and not merely on allegation, conjecture or remote possibility.

When determining the injury caused by the increase in quantity of an import to a domestic industry, the injuries that are caused by factors other than the increase of imports shall not be attributed to the increase of imports.

Article 9 During the period of an investigation, the Ministry of Commerce shall promptly publish a detailed analysis of the case under investigation and the relevant factors.

Article 10 The term "domestic industry" means the domestic producers as a whole of the like or directly competitive products within the People's Republic of China or those of them whose collective output of the like or directly competitive products constitutes a major proportion of the total domestic production of those products.

Article 12 The Ministry of Commerce shall provide opportunities for importers, exporters and other interested parties to present their views and supporting arguments.

The investigation may be conducted by means of sending questionnaires, holding public hearings, or by other appropriate means.

Article 13 The Ministry of Commerce may treat the information collected during an investigation as confidential, if the information provider deems it necessary.

If the request for confidentiality is justifiable, the information provided by the information provider shall be treated as confidential, and the information provider shall be required to provide non-confidential summaries thereof.

Chapter III Safeguard Measures

Article 16 In critical circumstances where there is clear evidence of increase in quantity of an import, and such increase would cause injury to a domestic industry which it would be difficult to remedy without the application of safeguard measures, a preliminary determination may be made and provisional safeguard measures applied.

Provisional safeguard measures shall take the form of tariff increases.

Article 17 The proposal applying provisional safeguard measures shall be put forward by the Ministry of Commerce, and, on the basis of such a proposal, the State Council Tariff Commission shall make a decision which shall be published by the Ministry of Commerce. The Customs shall implement the decision from the effective date set forth in the public notice.

Article 21 Where a quantitative restriction is applied, the quantity of imports after restriction shall not be less than the average quantity of imports in the last three representative years, unless clear justification is given that a different level of the quantitative restriction is necessary to prevent or remedy serious injury.

Where a quantitative restriction is applied and it is necessary to allocate quantity among exporting countries (regions) or countries (regions) of origin, the Ministry of Commerce may consult with the exporting countries (regions) or countries (regions) of origin concerned in the allocation of quantity.
