Anti-dumping

On October 28, 2009, the Secretary for Foreign Trade of the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of tableware of glass from Argentina, China and Indonesia (Circular No. 58, 28.10.2009). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 7013.4900. The complaint was lodged by the Brazilian Technical Association of Automatic Glass Industries (Associação Técnica Brasileira das Indústrias Automáticas de Vidros - ABIVIDRO), on behalf of the companies Nadir Figueiredo Indústria e Comércio S.A., Owens-Illinois do Brasil Indústria e Comércio S.A. and Saint-Gobain Vidros S.A., on April 27, 2009. The investigation started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on October 29, 2009.
On February 28, 2011, the Brazilian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of tableware of glass from Argentina, China and Indonesia (Resolution No. 8, 28.02.2011). The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Argentina is USD 0.37 per kilogram, at the exception of the company Rigolleau S.A. whose exports are subject to a duty of USD 0.18 per kilogram. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in China is USD 1.70 per kilogram. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Indonesia is USD 0.15 per kilogram. This definitive duty entered into force on the day of the publication of the resolution in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on March 1, 2011, and is applicable for a period of five years.
On May 21, 2014, the Secretary for Foreign Trade of the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade decided to initiate a review to determine whether the products 'set of six glasses of soda-lime glass without foot' and 'jar of soda-lime glass with plastic lid for water' are subject to the payment of the anti-dumping duty imposed on February 28, 2001 by Resolution No. 8 or not. The investigation started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on May 23, 2014.
 
On 29 February 2016, the Brazilian authorities initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed by CAMEX Resolution No. 8 of 28 February 2011, published on 1 March 2011, on tableware of glass from the US and Mexico (Circular No. 13, 26.02.2016). This review follows a petition lodged on 29 October 2015 by ABIVIDRO on behalf of Nadir Figueiredo Indústria e Comércio S.A. The existing anti-dumping measure remains in force during the review period.
 
On 23 December 2016, the Brazilian authorities extended the definitive anti-dumping duty on the subject good from China, Indonesia and Argentina following the conclusion the above-mentioned sunset review (Camex Resolution No. 126 of 2016). The rate of duty on imports from Argentina remains at USD 0.37 per kilogram, at the exception of the company Rigolleau S.A. whose exports are subject to a duty of USD 0.18 per kilogram. The rate of duty on imports from China remains at USD 1.70 per kilogram. The rate of duty on imports from Indonesia remains at USD 0.15 per kilogram. The duty is in force for a period of five years.
