Anti-dumping

On December 15, 2009, the Brazilian authorities decided, after having conducted an expiry review, to continue the anti-dumping duty on imports of unwrought metallic magnesium, containing at least 99.8% by weight of magnesium, from China (Resolução No. 79, 15.12.2009).
The products subject to the duty are classified under the following HS codes: 8104.1100 and 8104.1900.
The amount of this definitive duty in USD per kilogram is 1.18 for all Chinese exporters. This definitive anti-dumping duty entered into force on December 16, 2009 for a period of five years.
This duty follows an expiry review requested by the Brazilian Association of Aluminium (Associação Brasileira do Alumínio - ABAL) on August 8, 2008. A review was then initiated by the Secretary for Foreign Trade of the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade on December 29, 2008 (Circular No. 94, 29.12.2008). The review started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on December 31, 2008.
 
The original anti-dumping duty entered into force on October 11, 2004 (Resolução No. 27, 05.10.2004).
 
On December 5, 2014, the Brazilian authorities decided to initiate a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed by Resolution No. 79 dated December 15, 2009 on imports of unwrought metallic magnesium originating in China (Circular No. 75, 05.12.2014). This sunset review started on the day of the publication of the circular in the Federal Official Gazette of Brazil, i.e. on December 8, 2014. It follows a request lodged on August 15, 2014 by RIMA Industrial S.A.
 
On September 24th, 2015, the Brazilian authorities decided upon the continuation of the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of metal magnesium originating in China (Resolution No. 91, 24.09.2015). The amount of the duty remains USD 1.18 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 September 25th, 2015, and is applicable for a period of five years.
