The New Zealand Gazette, Initiation of Reconsideration of Review of Anti-Dumping Duties: Preserved Peaches from China, issued on 4 June 2019: https://gazette.govt.nz/notice/id/2019-go2572
On 4 June 2019, the New Zealand authorities initiated an antidumping reconsideration investigation on imports of preserved peaches from China. The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code subheading: 2008.70. The investigation commenced retrospectively on 31 May 2019.
A reconsideration investigation is not an initial investigation but an appeal against the final findings issued. The definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good was terminated on 8 February 2018 following the conclusion of a sunset review initiated on 14 July 2017, see related state act. Following this final determination, Heinz Wattie’s Ltd sought a judicial review of New Zealand's Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment's investigation and final conclusion. In conclusion of this review, the High Court issued an Order revoking the Ministry's decision issued on 8 February 2018 and ordered the Ministry to conduct a reconsideration review. No duties will be imposed for the duration of the review.
