Anti-dumping

On March 6, 2012, the Secretary for Foreign Trade of the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of certain seamed tubes of austenitic stainless steel from China and Chinese Taipei (Circular No. 6, 06.03.2012). Specifically, the investigation refers to seamed tubes of austenitic stainless steel of circular section, with an outside diameter of 6mm or more but less than 2,032mm, with a thickness of 0.40mm or more and less than or equal to 12.70mm.
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7306.4000 and 7306.9020.
The complaint was lodged by Aperam Inox Tubos Brasil Ltda. (previously named Arcelor Mittal Inox Brasil Tubos Ltda.) on September 8, 2011.
The investigation started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on March 7, 2012.
On February 18, 2013, the Secretary for Foreign Trade of the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade decided to extend for up to six months, from March 7, 2013, the investigation period to determine the existence of dumping in exports of seamed tubes of austenitic stainless steel from China and Chinese Taipei (Circular No. 11, 18.02.2013).
On July 24, 2013, the Brazilian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of certain seamed tubes of austenitic stainless steel from China and Chinese Taipei (Resolução No. 59, 24.07.2013).
The amount of the duty in USD per tonne ranges from 0.00 to 679.08 for Chinese exporters (depending on the company) and ranges from 359.66 to 911.71 for Taiwanese exporters (depending on the company). This definitive duty has entered into force on July 29, 2013 for a period of five years.

On 27 July 2018, the Brazilian authorities initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from China and Chinese Taipei. This follows the application lodged on 29 March by Aperam Inox Tubos Brasil Ltda. and Marcegaglia do Brasil Ltda. The duty will remain in force for the duration of the review.
