Anti-subsidy

On July 21, 2014, the Peruvian National Institute of Antitrust and Intellectual Property Protection (Indecopi) decided to initiate an anti-subsidy investigation on imports of pure biodiesel B100 from Argentina (Resolution No. 081-2014/CFD-INDECOPI, 21.07.2014).
The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS code: 3826.0000.
The complaint was lodged on April 3, 2014 by Industrias del Espino S.A. The investigation started on the day of the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal El Peruano, i.e. on July 28, 2014.
 
On 29 January 2016, the Peruvian authorities imposed a definitive countervailing duty on imports of the above product from Argentina (Resolution No. 011-2016/CDB-INDECOPI, 28.01.2016). The amount of the definitive duty is between USD 15.4 and 208.2 per metric ton depending on the company. The duty is in force for a period of five years.
