Domestic producers have 30 days to request a review of this measure.
The anti-dumping measure on imports of plywood originating in China expires on July 26. This was reported by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, noting that domestic producers have 30 days to request a review of this measure. This petition must contain evidence that the lifting of the measure after its expiry is likely to result in the continuation or recurrence of dumping and injury. It should be recalled that the government had decided in June 2018 (decision published in the BO of July 26, 2018) to renew the anti-dumping duty of 25% against plywood imported from China, until July 26, 2022.
The decision to renew the anti-dumping tax follows a petition filed in 2018 by Cema Bois de l’Atlas, a Moroccan plywood producer. The investigation carried out by the services of the Department of Commerce had concluded that there had been dumping practices by Chinese exporters, with a dumping margin of around 68%, which had caused significant damage to this branch of national production. It should also be remembered that the initial investigation was introduced by the supervisory ministry in early May 2011, following a request submitted to the ministry on March 23, 2011 by Cema Bois de l’Atlas.
