Anti-dumping

On 25 October 2011 the European Commission announced the initiation of anti-dumping investigation concerning imports of bioethanol from the US. The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code subheadings: ex 2207 10 00, ex 2207 20 00, ex 2208 90 99, ex 2710 11 11, ex 2710 11 15, ex 2710 11 21, ex 2710 11 25, ex 2710 11 31, ex 2710 11 41, ex 2710 11 45, ex 2710 11 49, ex 2710 11 51, ex 2710 11 59, ex 2710 11 70, ex 2710 11 90, ex 3814 00 10, ex 3814 00 90, ex 3820 00 00 and ex 3824 90 97. The complaint was lodged on 12 October 2011 by the European Producers Union of Renewable Ethanol Association (ePURE), which represents more than 25% of the ethanol production in the EU.
 
On 23 February 2013, the European Council imposed definitive anti-dumping duties on the imports of the subject product from the United States. The rate of duty is EUR 62.3 (USD 82.21) per tonne net.

On 20 February 2018, the European Commission initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from the United States. The investigation follows the application lodged on 8 November 2017 by the European Renewable Ethanol Association.
