Anti-dumping

On 12 July 2013, the United Kingdom as part of the European Union initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of ammonium nitrate (solid fertilisers with an ammonium nitrate content exceeding 80 % by weight) from Russia (Notice No 2013/C 200/09). This follows the review lodged on March 28, 2013 by Fertilizers Europe (a European association of fertilisers manufacturers) on behalf of producers representing more than 25% of the EU production of the subject good. The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 3102.3090, 3102.4090, 3102.2900, 3102.6000, 3102.9000, 3105.1000, 3105.2010, 3105.5100, 3105.5900 and 3105.9091.

On September 23, 2014, the EU extended the definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Russia. The duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the regulation in the Official Journal of the European Union, that is on September 25, 2014.

On 19 February 2016, the EU amended the definitive measure imposing a specific duty on imports of ammonium nitrate from the KCKK Branch of Joint Stock Company United Chemical Company Uralchem in Kirovo-Chepetsk. The rate of the duty is EUR 47.07 (USD 53.49) per tonne.

On 16 November 2018, the EU amended the definitive duty imposed on imports of ammonium nitrate from Russia. The rate of duty is between EUR 28.78 and 32.71 per tonne and varies depending on the product classification and on the company. The regulation amending the definitive duty was published on 15 November 2018.

On 23 September 2019, the EU initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Russia. The investigation follows the application lodged on 21 June 2019 by Fertilizers Europe.

On 16 December 2020, the United Kingdom as part of the European Union extended the definitive duty on imports of ammonium nitrate (solid fertilisers with an ammonium nitrate content exceeding 80 % by weight) from Russia. The rate of duty is between EUR 28.78 and 32.71 per tonne depending on the specific good listed. The regulation extending the definitive duty entered into force on 17 December 2020. 

On 31 December 2020, the United Kingdom decided to maintain the definitive duty imposed on the subject good from Russia. The rate of duty is maintained in GBP starting from 1 January 2021, see related state act.
