Anti-dumping

On September 9th, 2009, the Secretary for Foreign Trade of the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade decided to initiate a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of sacks and bags of jute from Bangladesh and India (Circular No. 49, 09.09.2009).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 6305.1000.
The application for the review was lodged on March 16th, 2009 by the Institute for the Promotion of Production of Vegetable Fibres of the Amazon (Instituto de Fomento à Produção de Fibras Vegetais da Amazônia - IFIBRAM). The investigation started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on September 10th, 2009.

On September 2nd, 2010, the Brazilian authorities decided upon the continuation of the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of sacks and bags of jute from Bangladesh and India (Resolution No. 66, 02.09.2010).
The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in India is USD 0.45 per kilogram, at the exception of the company Birla Corporation Limited whose exports are subject to a duty of USD 0.15 per kilogram. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Bangladesh is USD 0.16 per kilogram.
This definitive duty entered into force on the day of the publication of the resolution in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on September 3rd, 2010.

The original anti-dumping measure was imposed on September 30th, 1992 by Portaria MEFP No 648. It was already extended a first time on September 24th, 1998 and a second time on September 9th, 2004 by Resolution Camex No. 24 (published in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil on September 10th, 2004).

On August 28th, 2015, the Brazilian authorities decided to initiate a sunset review of the anti-dumping measure imposed by Resolution No. 66 dated September 2nd, 2010 on imports of sacks and bags of jute from Bangladesh and India (Circular No. 55, 28.08.2015). It follows a request lodged on April 30th, 2015 by IFIBRAM. This sunset review started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on August 31st, 2015. The existing anti-dumping measure remains in force during the review.
 
On 29 September 2016, following the conclusion the above-mentioned sunset review, the Brazilian authorities extended the definitive anti-dumping duty on the above good from Bangladesh and India (Camex Resolution No. 94). The amount of duty on imports from Bangladesh is USD 0.16 per kg. The amount of duty on imports from India is USD 0.15 or 0.45 per kg depending on the company. This is with the exception of the companies Gloster Jute Mills Limited and Hooghly Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd., which is exempted from anti-dumping duties. The duty is in force for a period of five years.

On 30 September 2021, the Brazilian authorities announced the initiation of a sunset review of the definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Bangladesh and India. This follows the application lodged on 30 April 2021 by IFIBRAM.
