Anti-circumvention

On 20 February 2020, the European Commission initiated an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of certain slightly modified monosodium glutamate from China falling under HS code subheadings ex 2103.90.90, ex 2104.10.00, ex 2104.20.00, ex 3824.99.92, ex 3824.99.93 and ex 3824.99.96. This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed by Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/83 on imports of monosodium glutamate from China, see related intervention, might be circumvented.

On 14 October 2020, the European. Commission extended the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of monosodium glutamate from China (see related intervention) to imports of slightly modified monosodium glutamate from China. More specifically the subject good is monosodium glutamate in mixture or in solution, containing by dry weight 50 % or more of monosodium glutamate. The rate of duty is 39.7% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty. The regulation extending the definitive duty was issued on 13 October 2020. 

On 20 April 2021, the European Commission extended the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of monosodium glutamate from China, following the conclusion of a sunset review. Since the anti-dumping measure was extended to imports of monosodium glutamate in mixture or in solution (in particular, containing by dry weight 50 % or more of monosodium glutamate) from China, the sunset review and its conclusion will hold for this product as well. The duty monosodium glutamate in mixture or in solution is 39.7% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty. The regulation extending the definitive duty was issued on 19 April 2021.
