Anti-dumping

On June 4, 2014, the Argentinian authorities decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of certain types of non-adjustable hand operated spanner (also in sets) from China, Chinese Taipei and India (Resolution 78/2014, 04.06.2014).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 8204.1100.
The complaint was lodged by SNA-E (Argentina) S.R.L. The investigation started on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic, i.e. on June 10, 2014.
On July 7th, 2015, the Argentinian authorities issued their preliminary decision (Resolution 173/2015, 07.07.2015). They decided to continue the investigation without imposing a provisional anti-dumping duty. Resolution 173/2015 was published in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic on July 13th, 2015.
 
On 10 December 2015, the Argentinian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of the above-mentioned products from China, Chinese Taipei and India (Resolution 1912/2015). The rate of the definitive duty imposed on exports originating in China is 248.84% of the FOB value, for exports originating in Chinese Taipei it is 143.72% of the FOB value and for exports originating in India it is 406.06% of the FOB value. This definitive anti-dumping duty is applicable for a period of five years.
