Anti-subsidy

On November 6, 2009 China initiated anti-subsidy investigations on imports of saloon cars and cross-country cars (of a cylinder capacity = 2000cc) originating in the United States. The notification was issued by the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China (MOFCOM). The same notification also initiated an antidumping investigation.

On 5 May 2011, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) released the Notice NO.20 (2011), announcing the final determination of Anti-dumping&CVD duty on imported Saloon cars and Cross-country cars. And in accordance with this Notice NO.20(2011), upon approval from the Customs Tariff Commission of the State Council, the MOFCOM decided not to levy any anti-dumping / countervailing duty on investigated companies at the moment. But the MOFCOM did hold that it will release another Notice on this subject where necessary.

On 14 December 2011, the Chinese Ministry of Finance (MOF) announced to levy countervailing duties on certain cars imported from the United States. The products affected by this measure include saloon cars and cross-country cars with cylinder capacity over 2500cc, listed under HS codes 87032361, 87032362, 87032369, 87032411, 87032412, 87032419, 87032421, 87032422, 87032429, 87033311, 87033312, 87033319, 87033321, 87033322, 87033329, 87033361, 87033362, 87033369 and 87039000. The rate of duty is between 6.2% and 12.9% depending on the company. The duty entered into force on 15 December 2011. The same notice also imposed definitive antidumping duties, see related intervention.

On 15 December 2013, the definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good from the United States was terminated.
