Anti-dumping

On February 11, 2008, the Secretary for Foreign Trade of the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade decided to initiate a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of glyphosate (N-phosphonomethyl glycine), in its different forms (acid, salt and formulated) and degrees of concentration, used exclusively for the manufacturing of herbicide, from China (Circular No. 5, 11.02.2008).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 2931.0032, 2931.0039 and 3808.9324.
The application for the review was lodged on October 22, 2007 by Monsanto do Brasil Ltda. The investigation started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on February 12, 2008.
On February 3, 2009, the Brazilian authorities decided upon the continuation of the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of glyphosate originating in China (Resolution No. 03, 03.02.2009). The rate of the duty is 2.1%. This definitive duty entered into force on February 12, 2009, and is applicable for a period of five years. Resolution CAMEX No. 03 was published in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil on February 4, 2009.
The definitive duty imposed by Resolution No. 03 dated February 3, 2009 expired on February 11, 2014.
