Anti-dumping

On June 7, 2013, the Philippine authorities initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of wheat flour from Turkey. The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS code: 1101.0000. The dumping is suspected to have occurred between 2010 and 2012.

On June 2, 2014, the Philippine authorities decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of wheat flour from Turkey (Customs Memorandum Order No. 12-2014). The rate of the duty ranges from 0% to 39.26%, depending on the exact specifications of the good and on the Turkish exporter. This provisional duty is applicable for a period of four months.

On January 9, 2015, the Philippine authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of wheat flour from Turkey (Customs Memorandum Order No. 2-2015). The rate of the duty ranges from 2.96% to 16.19, depending on the exporter. Moreover, four following exporters are not subject to the payment of the duty (see table of Customs Memorandum Order No. 2-2015, p. 1). This definitive duty is applicable for a period of five years.

On 29 August 2019, the Philippine authorities initiated a sunset review of the definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Turkey.

On 20 October 2020, the Philippine authorities extended the definitive duty imposed on wheat flour from Turkey following the conclusion of the sunset review.
