Anti-dumping

On 23 July 2020, the Brazilian authorities initiated an antidumping investigation on imports of phthalic anhydride from Israel and Russia. The products subject to investigation are classified under HS code subheading 2917.35.00. This follows the application lodged on 30 April 2020 by Petrom Petroquímica Mogi das Cruzes S/A. Notably, a similar investigation concerning the subject good from Russia and Isreal was initiated in February 2020 and was later closed in April without the imposition of duties, see related state act. 

On 4 November 2021, the Brazilian authorities terminated the antidumping investigation on imports of the subject good from Israel and Russia without the imposition of duties. Reasons for termination are that there was insufficiency of information provided.
