National PVC canvas has favorable anti-dumping ruling
12/18/2018 - 17:18

Camex sets aside anti-dumping duty - in the form of a specific aliquot - for imports of PVC tarpaulins with textile reinforcement on both sides originating in China and South Korea


The Official Gazette published in its edition last June 24 the Resolution Camex (Foreign Chamber of Commerce) - number 51, dated 6/23/2016, closing investigation on the dumping of Brazilian PVC tarpaulin imports with textile fabrics on both sides, originating in China and South Korea.

The result of the investigation is the application of anti-dumping duty for a period of up to five years, in the form of a specific rate set at US $ / kg, ranging from US $ 0.29 / kg to 2.31 / kg, depending on the company country of origin.

In January 2015, Sansuy, a manufacturer of PVC laminates, filed a request for a dumping investigation with DECOM (Department of Trade Defense of the Ministry of Industry, Foreign Trade and Services). The investigation has technically found that exporters in China and South Korea have dumped exports to Brazil and that the practice has caused injury to this segment of the domestic industry. The damage was reflected, for example, in the significant fall in domestic production, in the loss of sales of the domestic industry, in addition to high rates of idleness, increase of inventories and reduction of jobs.

"The decision will strengthen conditions of competition and is of the utmost importance for the revitalization of the domestic PVC tarpaulin industry, which has been suffering from a significant increase in imports," explains lawyer Luiz Eduardo Salles of Azevedo Sette Advogados, Sansuy in this action. "It is important to emphasize that, although the request was made by Sansuy, on behalf of the domestic industry, the measure adopted will strengthen the entire national PVC tarpaulin industry, which has several other producing or producing companies," he adds.

The resolution has immediate application, ie all PVC tarpaulins with textile reinforcement on both sides (NCM 3921.90.19) occurring as of 06/24/16 and originating in China and South Korea, whose exporters are listed in Camex Resolution No. 51/16, will have the impact of the anti-dumping measure.

The Resolution in question, with a detailed description of the object product and the applicable rates, can be found on Camex's website:
