Anti-dumping

The International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa has recommended an increase in anti-dumping duty on fresh or chilled garlic originating in or imported from China. The duty is to be increased from R6.07 per kg to R10.37per kg. The product is classified under tariff heading 0703.20 and 0712.90. 
The revision was necessitated by application lodged by Dumping RemedyServices CC on behalf of the South Africa Garlic Grower's Association(SAGGA), the farmer's representative organisation for garlic in the Southern Africa Customs Union (SACU). SAGGA members are producers of 100percent of the SACU production. 
The decision was reached after the Commission decided that dumping of the product will continue if the duty remains at the existing level and the Southern Africa Customs Union (SACU) is likely to continue suffering material injury should the duty remain at the current level.
 
The extended anti-dumping duty entered into force on March 26, 2010. The amount of the duty is 1037c per kilogram (USD 0.100154 per kilogram according to the exchange rate on May 18, 2014). This follows the conclusion of a sunset review initiated on 21 September 2009.

On 20 March 2015, the South African authorities initiated a sunset review of the definitive antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from China. 

On 30 October 2015, the South African authorities extended the definitive antidumping duty on imports of the subject good from China. The rate of duty is 1925c per kilogram (USD 1.39 per kg).
