On July 17, 2013, the Secretary for Foreign Trade of the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of household articles and toilet articles of plastic (manufactured from polypropylene, polyethylene or polystyrene; coloured, decorated or transparent) from China (Circular No. 39, 17.07.2013). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 3922.1000 and 3924.9000.
