Anti-dumping

On 18 December 2008, the European Council imposed definitive anti-dumping duties on citrus fruits imported from China (HS codes: 2008.3055; 2008.3075 and 2008.3090).
The investigation was initiated on 20 October 2007 and preliminary anti-dumping duties were imposed on 05 July 2008.
 
On 22 March 2012 , in Case C-338/10, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) declared invalid the Council Regulation imposing the above measures (Xinshiji Judgement). The judgement was taken because the Council seems not to have taken all due care to determine the normal value on the basis of the price in a market economy.
 
On 19 June 2012, a notice of the council partially reopened the investigation on certain prepared or preserved citrus fruits, and on 18 February 2013, it re-imposed definitive anti-dumping duties on imports of the subject product. The rate of duty is between EUR 361.4 and 531.2 (USD 458.56 and 674.01) per tonne. If not extended the measure shall expire on 31 December 2013.
 
On 25 October 2013, the European Commission initiated a sunset review the anti-dumping duty on imports of certain prepared or preserved citrus fruits (namely mandarins, etc.) from China. This follows the application lodged on 12 August 2013 by Federación Nacional de Asociaciones de Transformados Vegetales y Alimentos Procesados.
 
On 12 December 2014, the European Commission extended the anti-dumping duty on imports of certain prepared or preserved citrus fruits (namely mandarins, etc.) from China following the conclusion of the above sunset review. The rate of duty is between EUR 361.4 and 531.2 (USD 450.43 and 662.06) per tonne.
