Anti-dumping

On May 31, 2012, the Argentinian Ministry of Economy and Public Finance decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of plates, sheets, foils, strips and self-adhesive, unprinted, plastic products from Chile (Resolution 55/2012, 31.05.2012). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 3919.1000, 3919.9000, 4811.4110 and 4811.4190.
The complaint was lodged by Avery-Dennison de Argentina 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 June 5, 2012.
On September 2, 2013, the Argentinian Ministry of Economy and Public Finance decided to continue the investigation without imposing a provisional anti-dumping duty (Resolution 145/2013, 02.09.2013).
On December 4, 2013, the Argentinian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of plates, sheets, foils, strips and self-adhesive, unprinted, plastic products from Chile (Resolution 13/2013, 04.12.2013).
The rate of the definitive duty is 7.06% of the FOB price for the exporting company Ritrama S.A. and 42% of the FOB price for all the other Chilean exporters. This definitive anti-dumping duty entered into force on the day of the signature of the resolution, i.e. on December 4, 2013, and is applicable for a period of five years.
