Anti-dumping

An anti-dumping investigation was initiated on 18th August, 2009 by the Secretariat of Foreign Trade (SECEX) of the Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade (Circular Letter SECEX nº 46 of the 14th of August, 2009). The product under investigation was 'glass vials with capacity up to 20ml, for pharmaceutical and cosmetics use', classified under the code 7010.90.90 of the Mercosur Common Nomenclature (NCM) . This tariff line includes a variety of different glass bottles and recipients.
 
The decision to initiate the investigation was made after the acceptance of a petition filed by a business association of glass manufacturers (ABIVIDRO - Associação Técnica Brasileira das Indústrias Automáticas de Vidro) and the company Wheaton Brasil Vidros Ltda. The imports from India classified under NCM 7010.90.90 amounted in 2008 to US$ 3,927,984, accounting for 15.5% of total imports of this NCM code. This product accounts for 0.11% of total imports from India. It must be noted, however, that these statistics are overestimated and do not reflect the amount of imports of the product under investigation, since the public information available refers to the whole of the tariff line, while the product under analysis typically includes a fraction of the respective product description.
 
On August 5th 2010 Brazil made public through its Department of Foreign Trade (SECEX) its decision to terminate the anti-dumping investigation without the application of anti-dumping measures.
