Anti-dumping

On September 5, 2007, the European Commission announced the initiation of an anti-dumping investigation on imports of monosodium glutamate from China (Notice No 2007/C 206/08).
The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS code: ex 2922.4200.
The complaint was lodged on July 23, 2007 by Ajinomoto Foods Europe SAS, company representing 100% of the EU production of the subject good.
On June 3, 2008, the European Commission decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of monosodium glutamate originating in China (Commission Regulation (EC) No 492/2008, 03.06.2008). The rate of the duty ranges from 33.8% to 39.7% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price, depending on the company. This provisional duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the regulation in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 144), i.e. on June 5, 2008, and applied for a period of six months.
On November 27, 2008, the European authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of monosodium glutamate originating in China (Council Regulation (EC) No. 1187/2008, 27.11.2008). The rate of this definitive duty ranges from 33.8% to 39.7% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price, depending on the company. This duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the regulation in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 322), i.e. on December 3, 2008.
 
On November 29, 2013, the European Commission announced the initiation of a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed by Council Regulation (EC) No. 1187/2008 dated 27.11.2008 on imports of monosodium glutamate originating in China (Notice No 2013/C 349/05). The application for the review was lodged on September 2, 2013 by Ajinomoto Foods Europe SAS, the sole EU producer of the subject good.
On January 21, 2015, the European authorities decided upon the continuation of the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of monosodium glutamate originating in China (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2015/83, 21.01.2015). The rate of the duty is not modified, i.e. ranges from 33.8% to 39.7% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price, depending on the company. This extension entered into force on the day of the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 15), i.e. on January 23, 2015.
