Anti-dumping

On November 9th, 2012, the Secretary for Foreign Trade of the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade decided to initiate a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of garlic (fresh or chilled) from China (Circular Secex No. 59, 09.11.2012).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 0703.2010 and 0703.2090.
The application for the review was lodged on August 10th, 2012 by the National Association of Garlic Producers (Associação Nacional dos Produtores de Alho - ANAPA).
The investigation started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on November 12th, 2012. The existing anti-dumping measure remains in force during the review.
 
On October 3rd, 2013, the Brazilian authorities decided upon the continuation of the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of garlic originating in China (Resolution Camex No. 80, 03.10.2013). The amount of the duty is USD 0.78 per kilogram. This definitive duty entered into force on the day of the publication of the resolution in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on October 4th, 2013.
 
The original anti-dumping measure was imposed on January 17th, 1996 by Portaria Interministerial MICT/MF No. 3.

On 4 October 2018, the Brazilian authorities initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from China. This follows the application lodged by Associação Nacional dos Produtores de Alho - ANAPA. The duty will remain in force for the duration of the review.
