On June 22, 2017 the Coalition for Fair Trade in Ripe Olives submitted an antidumping petition concerning ripe olives imported from Spain. Included are all ripe olives processed in Spain, regardless of the origin of the olives or the location of packaging. Excluded from the scope are: (1) “Spanish-style” and other similar olives that have been processed by being both fermented and briefly cured in an alkaline solution; (2) olives that have been processed by fermentation only; and (3) provisionally prepared olives unsuitable for immediate consumption (currently classifiable in subheading 0711.20 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States). On August 4, 2017 the U.S. International Trade Commission reached an affirmative determination in its preliminary injury investigation.
On January 19, 2018, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative preliminary determination. Commerce preliminarily found that respondents Aceitunas Guadalquivir, S.L., Agro Sevilla Aceitunas S.COOP Andalusia, and Angel Camacho Alimentacion S.L. were dumping at preliminary dumping margins of 16.80 percent, 14.64 percent and 19.73 percent, respectively. Commerce established a preliminary dumping margin of 17.13 percent for all other producers and exporters of ripe olives from Spain. As a result of the preliminary affirmative determination, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require cash deposits based on these preliminary rates.
On June 12, 2018 the Department of Commerce announced the affirmative final determinations. Commerce determined that exporters from Spain have sold ripe olives in the United States at 16.88 to 25.50 percent less than fair value.
On July 10, 2018 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of ripe olives from Spain. As a result of the USITC’s affirmative determinations, Commerce will issue antidumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of this product from Spain.
