Anti-dumping

On July 29, 2008, the Argentinian authorities decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of synthetic organic colouring materials from China and India (Resolution No. 189/2008, 29.07.2008).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 3204.1700, 3204.1210 and 3204.1400.
The complaint was lodged by Vilmax S.A.C.I.F.I. y A. The investigation started on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic, i.e. on August 1, 2008.
On September 10, 2009, the Argentinian authorities decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of the above-mentioned products originating in China and India (Resolution No. 365/2009, 10.09.2009). The duty takes the form of a minimum FOB export price: of USD 5.36 per kilogram for goods classified under HS code 3204.1400 (imports originating in both China and India), of USD 10.56 per kilogram for goods classified under HS code 3204.1210 (imports originating in both China and India) and of USD 8.38 per kilogram for goods classified under HS code 3204.1700 (imports originating in China only). This provisional anti-dumping duty entered into force on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic, i.e. on September 16, 2009, and is applicable for a period of four months.
On January 26, 2010, the Argentinian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of the above-mentioned products originating in China and India (Resolution No. 13/2010, 26.01.2010). The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in China is: 30.10% of the FOB price for goods classified under HS code 3204.1400, 60.50% of the FOB price for goods classified under HS code 3204.1210 and 45.23% of the FOB price for goods classified under HS code 3204.1700. The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in India is: 42.93% of the FOB price for goods classified under HS code 3204.1400 and 63% of the FOB price for goods classified under HS code 3204.1210. This definitive anti-dumping duty entered into force on the day of the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic, i.e. on January 29, 2010, and is applicable for a period of five years.
 
On November 21, 2011, the Argentinian authorities decided to initiate a review to assess whether circumstances that led to the imposition of the duty (by Resolution No. 13/2010 dated 26.01.2010) have changed (Resolution No. 484/2011, 21.11.2011). This follows the request lodged on July 7, 2011 by Sanyo Color S.A., Seipac S.A.I.C. y A. and Anilinas Rieger S.A. The review started on the day of the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic, i.e. on December 12, 2011.
The existing anti-dumping duty is suspended during the review.
On April 7, 2014, the Argentinian authorities concluded the review and decided upon the termination of the anti-dumping duty imposed by Resolution No. 13/2010 dated 26.01.2010 (Resolution No. 92/2014, 07.04.2014). Resolution No. 92/2014 was published in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic on April 11, 2014.
