HÀ NỘI — The Trade Remedies Authority of Việt Nam under the Ministry of Industry and Trade reported that the Brazilian Ministry of Economy has decided to terminate anti-dumping duties on cold-rolled stainless steel imported from Germany, Finland, the Republic of Korea and Việt Nam.
Under its sunset review’s conclusion, the anti-dumping measures will be extended for steel sheets purchased from China and Taiwan (China) for five years.
The products subject to the anti-dumping duty are coded 7219.32.00, 7219.33.00, 7219.34.00, 7219.35.00 and 7220.20.00.
On October 3, 2018, Brazil initiated the sunset review after receiving a petition from domestic steel producer Aperam Inox America do Sul S.A.
Earlier in 2012, Brazil launched an anti-dumping investigation into imports of cold-rolled stainless steel sheets from the six countries and territory.
Accordingly, Brazilian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping tax ranging from US$616.67 to $705.61 per tonne for Taiwanese exporters, from $1,030.2 to $1,076.86 for Finnish exporters, $952.9 for German exporters, from $267.84 to $940.47 for RoK exporters, and $568.27 for Vietnamese exporters. The duties entered into force on October 4, 2013, for a period of five years.
The Trade Remedies Authority recommended local exporters to strictly follow the rules of origin to ensure stable export to Brazil. —VNS
