Anti-circumvention

On March 2, 2012, the Argentinian authorities decided to initiate an anti-circumvention investigation to verify if Chinese imports of crossheads are circumventing the anti-dumping duty imposed by Resolution Resolution 36/2008 dated December 30, 2008 (see related intervention) by being declared as originating from Japan (Resolution 14/2012, 02.03.2012).
On December 30, 2008, the Argentinean authorities through Resolution 36/2008 adopted an anti-dumping duty of USD 10.97 kilogram against the importation of Chinese crossheads. Through the anti-circumvention procedure, the Argentinean authorities will verify the origin of imports of crossheads that have been declared as originating from Japan, to determine whether the Chinese product is effectively evading the payment of anti-dumping duty. If the authorities conclude that the measure is being circumvented, they could impose reprisals to the Japanese product.
The products subject to the anti-dumping duty and anti-circumvention investigation are classified under the following HS code: 8708.9990.
On August 9, 2013, the Argentinian authorities terminated the investigation by concluding that croosheads declared as originating from Japan and exported by GMB Corporation (and imported by SKF Argentina S.A.) have to be regarded as originating from China (Resolution 129/2013, 09.08.2013). Thus, those Japanese exports to Argentina will face the same treatment as Chinese exports of crossheads, that is the imposition of an anti-dumping duty of USD 10.97 per kilogram decided on December 30, 2008 by Resolution 36/2008. This duty imposed on Japanese exports of crossheads entered into force on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic, i.e. on August 17, 2013.
