Anti-dumping

On November 28, 2013, the Brazilian authorities decided, after having conducted an expiry review, to continue the anti-dumping duty on imports of loudspeakers from China (Resolução No. 101, 28.11.2013). The products subject to the duty are classified under the following HS codes: 8518.2100, 8518.2200 and 8518.2990. The amount of this definitive duty in USD per kilogram is 2.35 for all Chinese exporters. This definitive anti-dumping duty entered into force on November 29, 2013 for a period of five years. This duty follows an expiry review requested by Ask do Brasil Ltda., Bravox S/A Indústria e Comércio Eletrônico, Harman do Brasil Indústria Eletrônica e Participações Ltda. and Thomas K.L. Indústria de Alto-Falantes Ltda. on July 02, 2012. A review was then initiated by the Secretary for Foreign Trade of the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade on December 11, 2012 (Circular No. 65, 11.12.2012). The review started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on December 12, 2012. The original anti-dumping duty entered into force on December 13, 2007 (Resolução No. 66, 11.12.2007).

On 29 November 2018, the Brazilian authorities initiated a sunset review of the definitive antidumping duty imposed on imports of loudspeakers from China. This follows the application lodged on 29 July 2018 by Ask do Brasil Ltda., Harman do Brasil Indústria Eletrônica e Participações Ltda. and Thomas K.L. Indústria de Alto-falantes Ltda. The duty will remain in force for the duration of the review.

On 29 November 2019, the Brazilian authorities extended the definitive duty on imports of loudspeakers from China following the conclusion of a sunset review. The rate of duty is ad valorem 78.3% of the CIF value. The duty is in force for a period of five years.
