Anti-dumping

On April 23, 2008, the Argentinian authorities decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of stainless steel cutlery from Brazil and China (Resolution 107/2008, 23.04.2008).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 8211.1000, 8211.9100, 8215.2000 and 8215.9910.
The complaint was lodged by Iteca 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 April 26, 2008.
On February 23, 2009, the Argentinian authorities decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of the above-mentioned products originating in Brazil and China (Resolution 53/2009, 23.02.2009). The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in Brazil is 413.43% of the FOB price. The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in China is 1450.21% of the FOB price. 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 February 26, 2009, and is applicable for a period of four months.
On October 23, 2009, the Argentinian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of the above-mentioned products originating in Brazil and China (Resolution 12/2009, 23.10.2009). The duty imposed on imports originating in Brazil takes the form of a minimum FOB export price of USD 72.24 per kilogram, at the exception of the companies Metalurgica Simonaggio Ltda., Metalurgica Martinazzo Ltda. and Di Solle Cutelaria Ltda. The company Metalurgica Simonaggio Ltda. is not subject to any anti-dumping duty. The company Metalurgica Martinazzo Ltda. is subject to an anti-dumping duty of 5.385%. The company Di Solle Cutelaria Ltda. is subject to a duty of 16.38%. The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in China is 1,450.21%. This definitive anti-dumping duty entered into force on the day of the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic, i.e. on October 26, 2009, and is applicable for a period of five years.

On September 29, 2014, the Argentinian authorities decided to initiate a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on October 23, 2009 by Resolution 12/2009 (Resolution 704/2014, 29.09.2014). This follows the request lodged by Iteca S.A. and Metalurgica Dolci. The review started on the day of the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic, i.e. on September 30, 2014. The existing anti-dumping duty remains in force during the review.
 
On 30 March 2016, the Argentinian authorities decided to extend the definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of stainless steel cutlery from Brazil and China following a sunset review (Resolution 85/2016). The rate of the definitive duty imposed on imports from China is 146.46% of the FOB value and on imports from Brazil 11.36% of the FOB value. This definitive anti-dumping duty is applicable for a period of five years.
