Anti-dumping

On January 31, 2011, the Government of Argentina adopted anti-dumping duties consisting of a minimum import price of US$0.28 dollars per unit against certain handsaws from the Swedish companies SNA Europe (Industries) AB
and SNA Europe (Services) AB.
The anti-dumping investigation initiated on August 15, 2006, upon request of Sin Par S.A. y Uranga S.A. On February 14, 2008, the authorities adopted anti-dumping duties against Swedish handsaws. The measures consisted of minimum import prices of 103.4 and 80.74 dollars per kilogram. However, on that same date, the Government of Argentina and the exporter SNA Europe AB reached a suspension agreement that established minimum import prices for the next two years. Therefore the AD duties were suspended.
The adoption of the anti-dumping duties is a result of a review conducted by the Argentinean authorities to the suspension agreement.
The products subject to this measure are classified under the following tariff codes of MERCOSUR's Common Tariff: 8202.91.00 and 8202.99.90.
 
On 1 February 2016, the Argentinian authorities decided to initiate a sunset review of the anti-dumping measure imposed on imports of above-mentioned products (Resolución 8/2016). This follows the request lodged by SIN PAR SA. The duty will remain in force for the duration of this investigation.

On 31 July 2017, the Argentinian authorities extended the definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Swedish companies SNA Europe (Industries) AB and SNA Europe (Services) AB for a period of five years following the conclusion of the above sunset review. The rate of duty imposed is USD 0.28 per unit.
