Anti-subsidy

On 12 January 2016 the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China initiated an anti-subsidy investigation on imports of distiller's dried grains with or without solubles originating in the United States (Announcement No. 3 of 2016). The products subject to investigation are classified under HS codes: 2303.30.00. The complaint was lodged on 19 November 2015 by the China Alcoholic Drinks Association on behalf of the domestic industry of the subject good.
On the same day the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of the same product from the United States, see related measure.

On 30 September 2016, the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China imposed a provisional countervailing duty on imports of the subject good from the United States. The rate of duty is between 10.0% and 10.7%.
 
On 12 January 2017, the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China imposed a definitive countervailing duty on imports of the subject good from the United States. The rate of duty is between 11.2% and 12% ad valorem depending on the company. The measure is in force for a period of five years.

On 11 January 2022, the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China announced the initiation of a sunset review of the definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good from the United States. This follows the application lodged on 25 October 2021 by the China Alcoholic Drinks Association.

On 11 January 2022, the Chinese authority extended the definitive duty on imports of the subject good from the United Stated until 12 January 2023 following the initiation of the sunset review. The rate of duty on imports from the United States ranges from 11.2% and 12.0% depending on the company.
