Anti-dumping

On January 12th, 2009, the Argentinian authorities decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of food processors from Brazil and China (Resolution 6/2009, 12/01/2009). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 8509.4050. The complaint was lodged by Liliana S.R.L. The investigation started on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic, i.e. on January 15th, 2009.

On July 8th, 2010, the Argentinian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of food processors from Brazil and China (Resolution 8/2010, 08.07.2010). The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in Brazil is 24% of the FOB price. The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in China is 202.79% of the FOB price.
This definitive anti-dumping duty entered into force on July 8th, 2010, and is applicable for a period of five years. The resolution was published in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic on July 22nd, 2010.

On July 7th, 2015, the Argentinian authorities decided to initiate a sunset review of the anti-dumping measure imposed on imports of food processors from Brazil and China (Resolution 540/2015, 07.07.2015). This follows the request lodged by Electronic System S.A. and Liliana S.R.L. The existing anti-dumping duty imposed by Resolution 8/2010 remains in force during the review. The investigation started on the day of the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic, i.e. on July 8th, 2015.
 
On 7 July 2016, the Argentinian authorities extended the existing definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of food processors from Brazil and China following the above sunset review (Resolution 314/2016). The definitive anti-dumping duty imposed by Resolution 8/2010 is extended for a period of five years.
