UK launches investigation into alleged dumping of Argentine biodiesel

February 20, 2018 |

In the UK, an investigation was announced in the Official Journal reference C34 on January 31, 2018, relating to imports of biodiesel originating in Argentina. The investigation must be concluded within 13 months, although it can be terminated earlier.

A decision to impose provisional duties can be taken after a minimum of 60 days from the start of the formal investigation but it’s usually imposed for the last 4 months of the investigation. If this happens, a security to the value of countervailing duty is taken on imports entering into free circulation and held until the results of the investigation are published.

At the end of the investigation, the provisional countervailing duty may be made definitive, may lapse or be canceled. If following the investigation, it’s decided that the duty should be made definitive, the security will be brought to account. Definitive measures will normally remain in place for 5 years.
