Anti-dumping

On December 25, 2012, the Moroccan authorities initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of insulin, packaged in bottles of 10 milliliters, from Denmark.
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code: 3004.3110.
This follows the application lodged on August 15, 2012 by the Société de Thérapeutique Marocaine (SOTHEMA), a domestic producer of the subject good.
 
On April 15, 2014, the Moroccan authorities issued their preliminary report and recommended the imposition of a provisional anti-dumping duty at a rate of 17.12% .
On May 15, 2014, the decree imposing this provisional duty was published in the Official Gazette of the Kingdom of Morocco. The rate of the duty is 17.12%. It entered into force on the day following the publication of the regulation in the Official Gazette, that is on May 16, 2014, and is applicable for a period of four months.
 
On August 12, 2014, the Moroccan authorities issued their final report and recommended the imposition of a definitive anti-dumping duty at a rate of 13.89%.
On November 6, 2014, the decree imposing this definitive duty was published in the Official Gazette of the Kingdom of Morocco. The rate of duty is 13.89%. It entered into force on the day following the publication of the regulation in the Official Gazette, that is on November 7, 2014, and is applicable for a period of five years.
 
On April 27th, 2015, the Moroccan authorities decided upon the suspension of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of insulin from Denmark. This decision follows the commitment of the Danish company Novonordisk to increase its export price so that it equals the reference price calculated by the Moroccan authorities during the anti-dumping investigation. This revocation is conditioned on the continued price undertaking comment. The decision entered into force on May 26th, 2015.

On 25 October 2019, the Moroccan authorities initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Denmark. The duty has been imposed in the form of a price undertaking commitment.
