Anti-dumping

On March 3, 2011, the Argentinian authorities decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of asynchronous single-phase AC motors (power between KW 0.12 and KW 3, weighing at least 4 kilograms but less than 45 kilograms) from China (Resolution 38/2011, 03.03.2011). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 8501.4019. The complaint was lodged by Motores Czerweny S.A. The investigation started on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic, i.e. on March 5, 2011.
 
On June 8, 2012, the Argentinian authorities decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of certain types of asynchronous single-phase AC motors from China (Resolution 294/2012, 08.06.2012). The amount of the provisional duty ranges from USD 34.79 per unit to USD 167.09 per unit, depending on the technical characteristics of the motor (for details, see Annex of Resolution 294/2012). This provisional anti-dumping duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic, i.e. on June 14, 2012, and is applicable for a period of six months.
 
On September 4, 2012, the Argentinian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of the investigated products (Resolution 506/2012, 04.09.2012). The amount of the definitive duty is equal to the amount of the provisional duty, i.e. ranges from USD 34.79 per unit to USD 167.09 per unit, depending on the technical characteristics of the motor (for details, see Annex of Resolution 506/2012). This definitive anti-dumping duty entered into force on the day of the signature of the resolution, i.e. on September 4, 2012, and is applicable for a period of five years. Resolution 506/2012 was published in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic on September 6, 2012.

On 4 September 2017, the Argentinian authorities initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from China. This follows the application lodged by MOTORES CZERWENY SA. The duty remains in force for the duration of this investigation.
