Brazil Opens Sunset Review on Revision of Antidumping Oder against Imports of LWC Paper from Germany, Belgium, Canada, the United States, Finland and Sweden
Through Notice Circular Secex 19, published in the National Gazette today, on April 18, 2017, the Brazilian government initiated the first antidumping sunset review over imports of light-weighted coated paper originating from Germany, Belgium, Canada, the United States, Finland and Sweden, classified in the sub-item 4810.22. 90 of the Mercosur Common Nomenclature (NCM).
Despite the low rates in the original petition, and the collaboration of many respondents, the original case resulted in high duties against all exporters. The antidumping duties imposed on April 19, 2012 were as follows:
|Producer/Exporter||Antidumping Duty (US$/t)||Relative Dumping Margin|
|USA||Evergreen Packaging Inc.||179,69||30,1%|
|Stora Enso Oy||133,74||–|
|Sappi Finland I Oy||133,74||–|
|Germany||Stora Enso Kabel GmbH||106,77||11,1%|
|Norske Skog Walsum GmbH||45,94||5,7%|
|Belgium||Sappi Lanaken N.V||96,96||12,4%|
LWC paper is used mostly in popular magazines. Publishers tried to initiate a case for public interest allegations, but the case was ultimately not approved for the lack of the facts and figures of the sector, required for this type of impact analysis.
