Anti-dumping

On August 10, 2012, the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of all forms of 2.4Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2.4D) from China (Australian Customs Dumping Notice No. 2012/39).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 2918.9900 and 3808.9300.
The application for a review was lodged on July 5, 2012 by Nufarm Limited, the sole domestic manufacturer of the goods subject to the duty.
On November 28, 2012, the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service issued the Statement of Essential Facts (SEF Report No. 189A and 189B).
On January 31, 2013, the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service announced that the Minister for Home Affairs decided upon the continuation of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of 2.4Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2.4D) from China (Australian Customs Dumping Notice No. 2013/13). The extension of the duty enters into force on March 25, 2013 for a period of five years.
On January 31, 2013, the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service also announced that the Minister for Home Affairs accepted the recommendations concerning the amount of the duty (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2013/12). Those modifications entered into force on the day of the publication of the Notice in the Australian Official Gazette, i.e. on January 31, 2013. As mentioned in the notice, to preserve confidentiality, the revised variable factors are not published.
The original anti-dumping duty was decided on December 2, 2002 (Trade Measures Report No. 58) and imposed on March 25, 2003. A first extension was already decided on December 20, 2007 (Trade Measures Branch Report No. 126).

On 20 July 2017, the Australian authorities initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from China. This follows the application lodged on 26 June 2017 by Nufarm Limited.

On 5 March 2018, the Australian authorities extended the antidumping duty imposed on imports of dichlorophenoxy-acetic acid (2.4-D) from China from 25 March 2018. The rate of duty is ad valorem 25.6% or 35.3% depending on the company.
