On October 25, 2012, the Brazilian authorities decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of precipitated silicon dioxide from China and India (Circular No. 55, 25.10.2012). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 2811.2210. The complaint was lodged on May 8, 2012 by Rhodia Brasil Ltda. The investigation started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on October 26, 2012.
On April 23, 2014, the Brazilian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of precipitated silicon dioxide from China (Resolução No. 32, 23.04.2014). The amount of this definitive duty in USD per metric ton ranges from 63.39 to 594.41, depending on the Chinese exporter. This definitive anti-dumping duty entered into force on April 24, 2014 and is applicable for a period of five years. No duty was imposed on imports originating in India due to a margin of dumping that has been found to be de minimis. Resolution No. 32 was published in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil on April 24, 2014.
