On December 3 2010, the Government of Argentina announced the conclusion of an anti-dumping investigation on engine mechanisms for elevators and freight elevators originating in China. As a result, anti-dumping duties at 149 percent level were imposed. The measure will be in force for five years as of its issuance.
This follows the Argentinian authorities' initiation of an anti-dumping investigation against imports on elevators and forklift engines from China on May 29, 2009 . The investigation was extended on 3 June 2010.
On 4 December 2015, the Argentinian authorities decided to initiate a sunset review of the anti-dumping measure imposed on imports of above-mentioned products. The products subject to investigation are classified under the following tariff subheading: 8425.31.10 (Resolución 1856/2015). This follows the request lodged by ADSUR SA. The duty will remain in force for the duration of this investigation.
On 2 November 2016, the Argentinian authorities extended the existing definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of certain engine mechanisms for elevators and forklifts from China following the conclusion of the above sunset review (Resolution 615 - E/2016). The measure remains at an ad valorem duty of 149% and is in force for a period of five years i.e. until 1 November 2021.
On 1 November 2021, the definitive duty was terminated.
